A team of over 130 volunteers make this awesome event happen on the day. Remember, all our profit goes to charity. We guarantee you will have a fantastic day if you sign up to help volunteer.

Here is what some of the volunteers said in 2023:

“I love this morning of volunteering on the run course, I took a beat box and blasted music as the runners came up the hill, they loved it and I will be back”

“Early morning yes, but nonstop, cake from our own volunteer tent and free coffee, I really felt I had made a difference to the athletes too”.

“My first time as a volunteer and I loved it, I felt valued and loved the vibe of the whole day, I really enjoyed volunteering on the Saturday too, watching the whole event come to life”. I even got given lunch!

What you get if you volunteer:

  • Wedge of home-made flapjack to get you started
  • Sought after black CREW cotton T-shirt
  • Free home-made cake (by Ann our very own baker) and tea/coffee/water all day at the volunteer tent at Putsborough (bring your own cup and bottle)
  • Free Parking at Putsborough for the day
  • High vis vest
  • Entered into a prize draw where we give away dryrobe and Croyde Ocean Tri goodies.

How long will I have to volunteer for?

Swim, start line, transition, race HQ, Event Arena or welcome teams

Start at 05:30, then move to help elsewhere, take a break then help at the finish line and in transition. This team will also be provide with lunch and you can expect to finish at around 14:00.

Bike course team

In place from 07:30, little later for those on the second half of the course/s. You will be finished by 10:30 -11:30 depending on where you are on the course. For example those marshalling in Mortehoe will marshal from 08:45 – 10:45 just two hours

Run course team

In place by 08:30-09:00, this depends where you are based on the course/s. You will be finished by 11:30-12:45 depending on where you are on the course/s

Board paddlers: If you are a competent/level 2 SLS board paddler and are up for helping in the sea on a board from 06:30-09:30. We would love to have you. Please can you send us an email to say YES! [email protected].

Board paddlers get all of the above and a hot breakfast bap.

If you are a paddler from a local SLS club – make sure you let us know which club you are from as we will donate £20 to your club for every paddler you provide.

If you are part of a Surf Life Saving Club and your child is competing on Sat 13 July – please still, try to come and help on 14 July as you were all awesome last year. I will make sure you are NOT given a super early start time. Just make a note of this when you complete the volunteer form.

How do I get my T-shirt etc if I am not coming to Putsborough?

We will deliver your packs to your team leader the day before who you will meet up with before you start your marshalling role and hand them out.
