Being a volunteer is both rewarding and motivating
The task of taking on a 1.9 swim, 90 bike and 21.1 run is daunting in itself, but doing it without the supporters on the sidelines and the teams of ‘volunteers’ who are there directing traffic, assisting in transition, handing out drinks at aid stations and supporting athletes in recovery would be a much tougher task.
- Being a volunteer is both rewarding and motivating. You can…
- Make a contribution to sport
- Be part of an event
- Gain useful experience and job satisfaction
- Meet new people
The Challenge Laguna Phuket Tri-Fest is a huge event that takes a mammoth effort from all our 600 volunteers. As well as needing support on race day, the Challenge Laguna Phuket team also need the assistance of dedicated individuals to help in the lead up and post event. Some of these tasks include:
- Making up of registration packs
- Helping at registration
- Infrastructure build-up and breakdown
- Venue set up and breakdown
- Setting up of aid stations
- Helping in transition
As a volunteer you will be asked to perform a duty or duties as part of a team. This may be one shift, or split with a break in between but don’t worry, we will provide you with food and drink. Briefing times will be confirmed as volunteers are allocated to roles accordingly.
While knowing their volunteering is helping such a worthy cause, any member of the volunteer crew who volunteers for more than six hours during Challenge Laguna Phuket will go in the draw to win three nights accommodation for two including breakfast at Laguna Phuket.
Adopt an Aid Station
Aid stations are an athlete’s lifeline, an oasis on their journey. It’s where they get refreshments to fuel them towards the finish line. Challenge Laguna Phuket is offering locals/supporters/companies the opportunity to adopt an aid station. Local non-profit organisations can use it as a fundraising opportunity or to raise awareness of their cause, businesses can use it as a team building exercise for their staff and/or brand awareness or a bunch of friends can use it as a fun day out. Dress up, theme it, name it, bring lots of energy and a smile. Each aid station needs ten people – there’s no maximum age but there is a minimum age limit of 10 (18 on the bike course and aid stations situated on roads).
