Some volunteer roles that require filling are:

Aid station Staff - set up and staff the course aid stations which are all accessible by vehicle. Includes set up shade shelter, timing area and water and food supply. Work with the medical team to monitor the condition of the runners. Record runners arriving and their times. Report back to race headquarters on any issues. Pack up after the sweep and course is clear and return to finish area.

Finish Area Staff - general tasks around camp including setting up the runner tents, officials / timing tent, medical tent, toilets, water supply etc.

Course Setters - place the course markers before each stage.

Fore-Runners - check the markers just before use.

Sweeps - follow the last runners and clear the course markers.
