We LOVE our volunteers! Our events simply could not happen without amazing team, community, and group volunteers, SWAT, and so much more! We appreciate our runners willingness to volunteer to help make our events happen and keep the costs manageable for our runners. The following is information about different aspects of volunteering for events:

SWAT stands for: Sweaty, Wet, And Tired. As a SWAT Crew member, you’ll be part of the behind-the-scenes team for 4-5 days executing one of our races.. You can expect to be tasked with setting up/breaking down the course or village, training & directing volunteers, and engaging with runners in various leadership positions.  SWAT work long hours doing strenuous work and must be available Wednesday through Sunday. Applications to join the SWAT Crew are accepted at https://airtable.com/shreLdboou8nVorkw. The number of interested people exceeds available SWAT positions every year so we aren’t able to include everyone that is interested.

Road Volunteer Exemption: if everyone of your team members live at least 100 miles away from the event, you can file for an exemption from a volunteer requirement. Please reach out to our team at customerservice@runragnar.com for more details.

While we do have a distance exemption that is available for our road races, this does not apply for trail races. For road races, there are a very limited number of shifts available for runners to fulfill, but because all of the volunteer shifts for trail races happen at the venue where the team is camping, there is ample opportunity for a team member to fill a volunteer shift. Volunteer shifts are three hours in length and there are a variety of shift times which allow participants to volunteer before, between or after running their loops.
