volunteer

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: volunteer@ggtc.org

How to sign up:

Watch the GGTC newsletter, calendar and social channels for sign-up 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, please tell as soon as possible.

How to get there:

We often organize carpools for volunteering events. When you signup for an event, the Volunteer Director will help coordinates rides and it would be appreciated if those with space could offer their cars up for carpooling.

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.
