From packet pick-up and registration to course marshals and meal service, there are tons of 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!
