Volunteer Opportunities
 
Often the best takeaway of a race isn’t your finisher’s medal or time, but the fun you had on the course. Without volunteers and cheer stations, a lot of that fun would be sorely missed. Help ensure a good time for your fellow triathletes by volunteering or cheering at one (or all) of these club-sponsored events!
 
If you have any questions regarding volunteering, contact our Volunteer Director, Camille Gulick: volunteer@ggtc.org

How to sign up:
Watch the GGTC calendar and Facebook page for event announcements. Those that require signup forms will include a link. Please remember that once you sign up, we’re counting on you to be there. If your plans change, so should your RSVP.

How to get there:
Often there are carpooling opportunities for these events. See the club forum or Facebook event postings to coordinate a ride or offer space in your car to others.

What to wear:
We love our club colors, so GGTC gear and red/black attire is always encouraged. If you’re feeling festive, bring accessories and dress in costume - race participants always enjoy that! Noisemakers, clapping hands, and cow bells are always a great addition to any aid station or cheer tent.
