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 adventurerunning@gmail.com or call us at 218-340-6170.  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.

 

If you're interested in volunteering, please complete our volunteer sign up form:

 

WILD DULUTH VOLUNTEER SIGN UP FORM

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.
