Each athlete is required to have at least two adult land crew members to accompany them throughout the entire land portion of the race.
Volunteer crew positions are available to support some of our international athletes.
Volunteer crew will be assigned to a specific athlete for the duration of the event. Ideally, you should be available to support your athlete from the Wednesday before the event, and stay for the Awards Banquet on the Tuesday after the event. Your athlete is responsible for all crew expenses, including your accommodation in Noosa, meals, and use of your personal vehicle if required. The commitment for volunteer land crew is substantial but this is a volunteering experience like no other.
Volunteering as a crew member is a great way for any athlete to gain great experience in planning for your own UM Australia event. Athletes volunteering as a crew member will receive preference in future selection processes.
Local surf lifesaving members who wish to accompany an athlete on the swim leg are encouraged to contact us to express interest.
Be part of the event:
UM Australia requires volunteers to assist with set-up and take-down, equipment transportation, direction control and course communication. Volunteers can assist for as much or as little time that suits you.
If you’d like to experience volunteering on a whole new level…be prepared for a serious tug on your heartstrings!
