Here are some of the positions we are looking for:
The Start/Finish Team will be a group of people who love challenges, make quick decisions, work hard in a variety of tasks and – most importantly – have fun doing it! You will pitch in on all of tasks below as a team. Simply put, we will work hard and have fun! Our job is to make the racers’ offbike experience the best in the world!
Some of the many different Start/Finish tasks and roles include:
Finish Line Food – You will be one of the first faces a racer encounters after the finish line. You have an important job of re-fueling the hungry racers when their race is over. You will need to help with setup, teardown and prep of your station.
Retail – Have a knack for selling and keeping things organized? This is a great spot for you!
Bike Wash – Because bikes need to get clean, too! This area requires the set-up, maintenance, and teardown of the bike wash stations after the riders have given their bikes a much earned clean at the end of the day.
Green Team – Keeping the site clean and green!
Bike Team – Help with loading & unload bikes on transport days and managing the bike area daytime.
Tent City Team – Setup and teardown tent city on all the days we move!
Catering – Help monitor and manage meal lines while keeping the meal hall clean during Breakfast & Dinner.
Medical Team Volunteers
Nurses – Each day we will have 2 Aid Stations set up on course and would like one Registered Nurse at each. RNs are invited to volunteer on a daily basis, or for part or the entire race. Nursing students are also welcome!
Paramedics – We will require 3 to 6 paramedics each day…whether you’re an EMR, PCP, or ACP…are all welcome. Due to the nature of this event, it would be a great benefit if you are fit and have a sense of adventure!
First Aiders – We are happy to hear from eager individuals with 80 hours of wilderness first aid, EMR or OFA Level 3 training.
General Qualifications for All Medical Team Volunteers – If you are interested in volunteering for the BC Bike Race Medical Team, you will require good quality, terrain-appropriate footwear (i.e. hiking boots) as we will be stationed in the Backcountry. Also, due to the Backcountry setting, and the multiday- long stage race concept, you should be able to lift a stretcher, consider yourself fit, love the outdoors, and love to sit in the outdoors all day (no matter what the weather!). Though not a requirement, it would be a great bonus if you have any or all of the following: radio communication skills, helicopter landing zone preparation experience, and wilderness stretcher carrying skill/experience.
Aid Station Volunteers – The two daily Aid Stations provide racers with much needed food, water and supplies. For each stage of the race, our team of volunteers will work to set up on-course Aid Stations and cheering on the riders! Each day at Base Camp, we will evaluate supply levels and restock for the next day. You must be able to lift and carry heavy items.
Course Marshals – Only able to help out for the day? We have a number of Course Marshal positions available at each stop along the race. Let us know for which day and at which community you’re interested in volunteering and we’ll put you in touch with the Course Director for that area.
Animations – Have a talent that you want to share? We can find a great spot for you to be on course to entertain and encourage the racers!
