It’s time to sign up to volunteer to help your friends, fellow club members and yes strangers complete one of the most difficult athletic
sporting events! It might also be the first step in you trying to complete this endeavor. What ever reason you sign up for it is time to make that commitment. The Volunteer Sign Up starts sharply at 6:00 a.m. onMonday August 3rd. Please sign up early!! Last year over 75 had signed up in the first two days. Only a third were from our club. A lot of people from out of town like our location since it is the closest to the finis and starting line. If you are one of those looking to do this race next year this is the only way to get into the race. Arizona is the most popular for first time ironman competitors. By volunteering you will get a place in place in the race.
So how do you sign up? Starts by going to the Ironman Arizona web site and find the volunteer tab. Select it and then fill out the information. If you already have an Active account it will direct you to sign in. If not just fill in the information about you. Finally you will be sent to the area where you will select where you want to work and a time slot. You will want to select RUN AID #4 and the time slot that you want to work. This is the tedious part because they are not in any kind of order. Just look for RUN AID #4 and the time slot you want to work. There are (4) different time slots 10 to 3, 2 to 7, 6 to 11 and 8 to 11. once you have done that you are almost done. Just confirm and you will be done. You should receive an email within 24 hours verifying that what time and activity you signed up for.
Thanks once again for being willing to help out. I can tell you it will be a day filled with fun and excitement. I will see you onSunday morning November 15th, Ironman Arizona Day, on the line helping everyone we can!
