Do you want to see what the other side of an event is like? Are you injured and still want to be involved with the running community? Is your better half waiting around for you to finish and wants to be able to help with the race?

If you have ever wondered about any of these questions, hear what one of our volunteers Rebecca Cramp said….

“The first time I volunteered at a Running Wild event I was supposed to be racing but was sidelined due to injury. Volunteering allowed me to still be amongst the vibe and celebrate with my friends who were racing on the day.

The second time I volunteered was for the Mt Solitary Ultra Marathon, an event I am far from being able to participate in yet. This was a fantastic experience and afforded me the chance to learn some great strategies while helping runners at checkpoints, give runners that high energy vibe while cheering them on and be a part of such an amazing running community.

Running Wild is a volunteer run organisation and their events are extremely well run. I would definitely recommend volunteering to any fellow runner. I can’t wait to do it again.”

Well if the answer is yes to any of those questions we need around 10 volunteers for every Short Course Race we put on. Long Course Races can need more volunteers than that just to make the day a success. As Running Wild appreciates all the help it can get we offer a free race for every event that you help at. That being if you help at a Short Course Race, your next short course race will be free, or if you help at a Long Course Event the next Long Course event will be free as well.

Running Wild as a not for profit organisation is run by volunteers. Our committee are passionate runners, who love to see people out on the trails. Please note that we do hold an AGM every year, if you think you can help input into Running Wild, we would love to hear from you!!
