From the very beginning, volunteers have made the "Race Across the Sky" possible. We truly appreciate all that our great volunteers do to make our races run smoothly and to make the racers' experience unforgettable.
If you are going to be in town for one or more of the Leadville Trail events, we would love for you to join the family and pitch in. Thanks in advance for your help — we couldn't do it without you!
Our medical volunteers are key to making sure our racers and races are as safe as possible. If you are a doctor, nurse, or EMT and would like to help in this capacity, please complete this form to join us in Leadville.
Here are some answers to Frequently Asked Questions:
If I volunteer will I get an automatic entry into next year's 100-mile bike race?
You will receive a volunteer verification form documenting your help. If you submit that signed form at registration time, it will provide you with preference in next year's lottery. The more hours you help, the more preference you receive.
What should I wear to volunteer?
For your time and effort, you’ll receive a great t-shirt! We want you to wear it while you’re helping out so that you are easily identifiable to racers and crews. Remember that weather in Leadville is variable. Just because it's July or August does not mean that it's necessarily warm enough for shorts and sandals. Be prepared with pants, jacket, and even hats/gloves. Also, don't forget the sunscreen, as we are above 10,000 feet.
Can I bring my family, friend, neighbor or co-worker?
The more the merrier. To help with appropriate staffing, it's best to know numbers, even at the last minute. Although we'll never turn away great help.
How long should I plan to help?
Some assignments will require a strong commitment of particular hours. Just let us know what you can do and we'll make the most appropriate assignment.
What should I do if I cannot make it?
Just let us know. We recognize that there are unforeseeable circumstances, but if you're able to send a quick email or give us a call, we'll be able to adjust.
