Volunteers Make it All Happen
From packet pick-up and registration to course marshals and meal service, there are SO many ways you can help. Sure… when you volunteer, you can look forward to that warm & fuzzy feeling that comes by sharing so much aloha, but there’s WAY more to it than that. There’s no experience necessary but space is limited, so please let us know you’re available right away!

Where You Can Help
Nursing an injury? Not a runner? No experience? No idea how things might look behind the scenes of a major event? No worries… you can still help! We’ve got spots for the high-energy and the more subdued… the introvert and the extrovert, the detail oriented and the super social, just take a peek at the position descriptions below and let us know where you think you might shine brightest when you sign up.
|Packet Pick-Up||Checking in athletes who’ve registered online and gathering the appropriate SWAG. Being detail oriented is super helpful, and because you will often be the first face-to-face impression of Aloha Racing, being cheerful and welcoming is a must. You’ll spend some time standing, sitting and moving around a bit, but nothing too strenuous.|
|Registration||Similar to packet pick-up but you’ll be helping folks who decide to register in person. A bit more detail here with payments & such, but more sitting too… a great spot for someone nursing an injury.|
|Gear Check||Mostly on your feet but super simple… just attaching tags with bib numbers to items or bags left in our care, then organization and of course, security. Best for those who aren’t easily distracted, as we like to keep a close eye on this stuff.|
|Course Aid||Serving beverages and/or energy supplements as athletes pass by… very busy at times, then not so much as the pack thins out. Time will be split both sitting and standing, plus some bending to pick up items that didn’t quite make the trash cans. Great for either the cheerleader at heart or those who are a little more reserved, and TONS of ‘thank you’s’ from the athletes.|
|Course Marshal||Typically just pointing folks in the right direction or tracking bib numbers as they pass key points on course. Usually a solo role that can be high energy if you are a motivator or a little more subdued… either way, you make a huge difference for the athletes.|
|Traffic Control||Some confidence is definitely beneficial here. HPD will be handling any crossing of open roads, but side roads need a responsible eye too. (Must be at least 18 to fill this position.)|
|Finish Aid||On your feet the entire time handing out beverages, towels and finisher medals, but the most fun and SO motivating as everyone completes their goal.|
|Meal Service||Just cutting fruit, pouring milk & serving burritos, on your feet pretty much the whole time. This is probably our most social spot… everyone’s finished so the pressure is off, and because this is usually one of the last interactions before everyone heads home, positive and appreciative attitudes are critical.|
