There are many ways to get involved in the YMCA of Canberra Runners Club as a Volunteer. All club races and events that we conduct rely on volunteers helping out in roles such as registrations, timekeeping, drinks stations, safety at road crossings and other roles. The races can only run when people volunteer to turn up and help!
The Club's daily operations are also run by a Committee of Club Volunteers who are elected each year.
The Club has a contract with Fairfax Events to support the Australian Running Festival and the Canberra Times Fun Run, through providing strategic advice and fill a range of roles including lead and sag wagon drivers, lead cyclists and marshals. This is a way in which the club raises funds for its own activities. We also regularly provide pacers for these events.
Volunteering opportunities will be advertised in our newsletter and also posted on this website and on facebook.
Keep an eye out!
