The Wild Duluth races could not happen without the dedication and support of our volunteers. If you, your friends or your group would like to help volunteer for this year's races please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or call us at 218-340-6170.
We are in need of a LOT of volunteers. We have to fill 135 volunteer spots over the weekend, so we'll need all the help we can get. You can sign up to volunteer via the link below. The Sign Up form will be updated closer to race date:
Please look closely when signing up for a spot in SignUpGenius as we have several shifts for most aid stations where we need the most volunteers over the weekend. If you can cover more than one shift that would be incredibly helpful.
We are also looking for local cross-country running or skiing teams that might be interested in volunteering and/or manning an aid station. We would need at least one adult to work with the athletes and help with aid station management. Wild Duluth races would like to make a donation to each team volunteering their services. Donations would be dependent on runner numbers and dollars available. Please contact us if interested in this opportunity.
VOLUNTEER DISCOUNT: Half Marathon or 10K runners who elect to volunteer at least 4 hours on Saturday will receive a discount on their entry into Sunday's Half Marathon or 10K. 100K and 50K runners who volunteer for the Half Marathon and 10K on Sunday will receive a discount on Saturday's 100K or 50K entry. Please contact us to let us know you are racing and volunteering on the opposite day to receive your discount code. You may also receive a discount on any of next years races if you volunteer at least 5 hours for the 100K and 50K races.
If you'd like to volunteer for one of the opportunities listed below, please let us know and we'll plug you into that position.
