You are signing up to volunteer at one of the most unique, scenic, wilderness relay courses in the United States – Every team must provide two (2) relay volunteers who are at least 16 years of age or older. Volunteers must be physically capable to perform all of their assigned duties. We will provide a map of the course, marked with the locations of opportunities to volunteer. Relay volunteers will be responsible for choosing a location. Relay Volunteers are the backbone of the relay race and signing up for the shift on a registration site.We ask that all volunteers complete a six hour shift, be prompt, and allow additional time for driving to their assignment. We acknowledge the importance of our volunteers! Without a group of dedicated volunteers from the teams, this race would not be possible. We thank you in advance for your time in helping us make the Smoky Mountain Relay a successful and safe event.
After we have received your volunteer registration, we will send you an email with important information that can help you be a great volunteer!
