With Christmas 2016 out of the way and a dark dank January behind us, the 2017 triathlon season is rapidly approaching. The early season BRAT Lichfield Sprint Triathlon has been confirmed for Sunday 30th April 2017 and is once again being held at Friary Grange School, Lichfield.
This pool based event has become a regular early season fixture on many a triathlete’s schedule to kick-off another year of racing.
Time and again we receive much positive feedback about the smooth running of the event and especially the cheerful upbeat marshals around the course whether they are handing out drinks on raceday, or directing competitors, to cheering on the final finishers and course take down there are plenty of jobs which without volunteer involvement would not make the athlete experience that which we aspire to provide.
So if you want to be part of the pride of enhancing the raceday experience for others, we’re offering FREE race places to the first 30 volunteers who sign up to volunteer*.
There are a variety of roles to be filled including:
- Competitor Registration
- Transition area team
- Swim lane counters
- Timing chip removal team
- Bike course marshals
- Refreshments team
- Run course marshals
- Course take down team
So, calling all … What are you doing on Sunday 30th April 2017?
Could you spare a few hours of your camaraderie to enhance the racing experience of others? Give a little something back to the sport you enjoy and support the Lichfield BRAT Sprint Triathlon the West Midlands Race of the Year.
All volunteers should register their interest to Daniel.Anderton@firstname.lastname@example.org
Many thanks in advance, and best wishes for the 2017 season.
*15 early morning race spots have been earmarked for volunteers who after racing will then take up their volunteer post and 15 late morning spots have been earmarked for volunteers who will begin marshalling and then swap with the early morning racers to participate in the event. Race spots will be allocated on a first come first served basis and should anyone drop out the spot will roll down to the next volunteer on the list.
