In a past life, I worked behind the scenes in some pretty big arts organizations. While I had work to do year round, and a small crew made the big decisions, those organizations couldn’t execute their events and shows without major support from volunteers. Running and Triathlon Races of any distance need volunteers, and lots of them.
Think about it. Have you ever completed an event without seeing a significant number of volunteers? The bigger the event, the more volunteers are needed. For example, this Fall’s Rock & Roll Denver races include a 5k, a 10k, and a half marathon. They are looking for more than 700 volunteers for the 3 day event! RunDisney events last 4-5 days, and need more than 1,000 volunteers to execute these magical races. A full distance Ironman event needs over 3,500 volunteers!!
