No, not to RACE!.....that would be just plain stupid at this point in the year, right? What we need you for is to participate in the awesomely rewarding role as an event Volunteer.
"Did he say 'VOLUNTEER' and "AWESOME' in the same sentence?" Yes, I did. Because it is, quite frankly, just plain awesome! Very few cities are afforded the Ironman opportunity, and even fewer pull it off like St. George.
I've been an Ironman St. George Volunteer Captain since the first running 4 years ago. 3 Full Ironman events later and now preparing to coordinate Volunteer efforts for the first "70.3" version of the event, I'm more excited than ever. There is just something electrifying about the day, the setting, the EVENT - you're missing out if you don't participate. Check this 2010 Ironman St.George video we shot:
How Do You Participate?
Simple, I'll give you 2 options:
1. Volunteer via "General" Ironman St. George Registration page: Ironman St. George Volunteer Opportunity This is a great option and will allow you to select for a variety of locations and jobs.
2. Volunteer with ME at MY stations! I'm co-directing efforts at Sand Hollow Reservoir. I can tell you it's an absolute riot to be at the swim start in the morning, energy is buzzing with 2500+ racers who've trained for months, maybe YEARS to be here. This venue gives you the chance to be there when the race kicks off, and be there as racers transition from the water - awesome. Ironman St. George Swim / Transition 1 Volunteer Opportunity We don't "mess around" and promise a great time - just over 30 spots available at this writing so GET ON IT!
The best time to sign up? NOW. I mean it. If you don't do it while you're reading this you'll forget, the race will pass, and you'll hear from friends about the great time they had. While you're at it, please pass this on to friends & family.
Race Day is Saturday May 4, 2013. LET'S DO THIS!! Email me with specific questions: firstname.lastname@example.org
