Any volunteers here or know how the process works? I haven't been able to get in touch with my team captain and I only know where we are meeting 30min before shift.

Do I need to sign in at a tent anywhere earlier? Pick up volunteer T-shirt or will the captain have all of them?

Thanks

Sorry, I don't know how the process will work with Whistler, but at both Penticton and Wisconsin I checked in at the volunteer tent about 30 minutes before my scheduled shift, got my t-shirt and was told where to find my team captain.  However, for both events, I had also been contacted more than once by the team captain to make sure we all knew what was going to happen that day. 

Especially if you're planning on signing up for the race the next day, make sure you sign in and get the wristband or whatever Whistler is giving out to ensure that you as a volunteer get first crack at signing up.

Thank you for volunteering, and I hope you have a great day out there!!

Hi! This is an email I received yesterday from my team captain. I'm volunteering at the finish line. What shift are you volunteering for?

"Training/Orientation Session (for those who can make it)
Saturday from 3:00 to 4:30 pm in the Athlete Registration tent at the northeast corner of Whistler Olympic Plaza (near the Paralympic Agitos). You will be issued your t-shirt and finish area access wristband, and your Sunday duties will be explained and demonstrated.

Sunday check-in for those who are unable to make the Saturday training:
Anytime prior to your shift, come to the Volunteer Food tent in Whistler Olympic Plaza (on the grass below the Olympic Rings; apparently the tent will have a blue tear drop flag on top). If you cant find it, ask at the Village Host booth."

Hope this info helps. Have fun!

Often it makes sense to race slower in order to finish faster and at the same time have a more enjoyable Ironman Triathlon experience.

During the race there will be plenty of opportunities to exchange bottles, so I'm thinking about going with the aero bottle and Gatorade bottle and fill up as necessary. What should I do?

My experience as a volunteer at a sprint triathlon. My reasons for arising before the sun were not to work out, but to volunteer. I wanted to give back to a sport I’m learning to love.

Everyone and anyone that has ever raced in a triathlon should take it upon themselves to volunteer at just one event next season. It is an eye-opening and inspirational experience.

If a heart patient can do these things, then so can those of you who haven't been split open like a fish and sewn back together.
