The Siskiyou Challenge team is grateful for the support of many generous volunteers! The race depends on more than 100 volunteers to lend a hand starting in Febrary, until a few days after the race. We would love your help!
If you'd like to volunteer, or are interested in exploring different volunteer options, please fill out this Volunteer Form.
You can expect our volunteer coordinator to follow up and match you with the best fitting time and task. We're on the lookout for people to help with pre-race marketing, photography, staffing water stations, event set-up & takedown, the racer raffle and more. Some jobs are exclusively on race day while others are ongoing or days before the race. Each task is unique in execution and timing but equal in importance to both the Siskiyou Challenge and Rogue Valley Farm to School.
All volunteers will receive a Siskiyou Challenge t-shirt, fabulous lunch & snacks the day of the race and our enthusiastic gratitude.
In addition to individual volunteers, there is an opportunity for teams of volunteers to host a leg of the race. Gather your friends, your book club, a neighborhood association, or representatives of a business to volunteer as a team. Cheer for the relay teams along the route and help make sure the Siskiyou Challenge happens safely and with enthusiasm!
Hosting entails being present on one leg of the race to guide racers and ensure safety, this is done through enthusiastic sign holding and cheering. A host team can be made up of 6 - 20 people. As a volunteer team we invite you to showcase your group or organization by wearing your own team t-shirts the day of the race, displaying signage on the course, and having an outreach presence at the event. Volunteer teams will be recognized on the Siskiyou Challenge website and by the Master of Ceremonies on race day.
All volunteers are asked to attend a pre-race volunteer meeting on April 22, 2017 at 3pm at the Ashland Food Co-op Community Classroom in Ashland.
