Volunteer

We are always on the look out for enthusiastic volunteers to help out at our events. If you have a friend or relative racing or you simply want to have fun as part of our marshaling team then we would love to hear from you. No experience required! Our list of rewards that volunteers may choose from includes discounted entry to Active Outdoor Sport events, discounted activities at Fritton Lake, free swims at Fritton Lake and other rewards. Alternatively you can choose to benefit a charity by volunteering at our events. In 2018 we will be working with the British Red Cross, Marine Cadets Troop 901 & Suffolk Accident Rescue Service.

We also welcome groups of volunteers and can offer discounted activity days at Fritton Lake as a group reward. We have worked with 1st Fressingfield Scout Group and Marine Troop 901 in 2016 and 2017 and we would be very pleased to hear from other groups that would like to get involved.

If you can, cheer, hand out bottles of water, point competitors the correct way, give out medals, help out in transition, man a dismount line or ride a bike we can find a job for you!

If you are a keen kayaker or paddle boarder and would like to be part of our swim support team helping out at open water events we would love to hear from you. You are welcome to bring your own craft and kit or we can supply. With the opportunity to explore the beautiful Fritton Lake between events or to relax & enjoy the race day atmosphere, it’s a fun and rewarding way to spend a day.

If you have any questions or would like more information about volunteer marshaling please email Carolyn at: info@activeoutdoorsport.co.uk
