Volunteer

Volunteering is a great way to experience the event, meet new people and have fun along the way.

Providing our riders with a safe and enjoyable day is our priority.

Volunteer at the Century Challenge

Not ready to ride the course but still want to be part of the excitement of Century Challenge? Volunteering is a great way to experience the event, meet new people and have fun along the way.

Becoming a volunteer can be a very rewarding and satisfying experience for people of all ages and walks of life. We need approximately 50 volunteers who assist with registrations & general administrative duties, food distribution at Rest Stops, road marshalling, pedestrian and directional marshalling, and more.

Whether you are a student interested in gaining work experience in the events industry or a retired professional looking for ways to contribute to the community, we can find a role to suit you.

There are plenty of jobs available over the weekend around the course, with volunteer shifts ranging from 2-8 hours.

Our hard working volunteers add to our event’s success and help create a safe and enjoyable experience for all the participants. Please do consider becoming involved and help all our riders have a great day out and safely reach the finish line!

Can I help and cycle?

We offer all our volunteers the opportunity to ride our events for free.
Depending on the role you would like to help with, we can either offer volunteers the opportunity to help for 2 hours in the morning and then ride the event that day – this will usually involve helping at Registration or with parking. But if you fancy helping out for the day that would be wonderful, you can cover many roles such as helping out at the venue or at a feed station.

There are so many benefits to volunteering:

  • learning new skills and trying something different
  • this is a great community event
  • staying active, meeting people and having fun
  • giving back to the community and feeling good
  • using your skills and knowledge to benefit others
  • free lunch at our post-event village

Examples of our Volunteer Jobs Available

  • Directing of riders on course

  • Directing of riders around start line and finish line

  • Assisting at the registration desk

  • Assisting at the rest stops (serving food and drinks) on course

  • Helping in the village area post event

There are plenty of jobs available over the weekend

It’s all about camaraderie, teamwork, friendship and fun

If you would like to contribute by volunteering, please email info@centurychallenge.com and one of our event team members will be in touch shortly.

Yes. Helpers must be over 16.

What could I be doing on the day?

Registration – you could be assisting other riders to collect their rider number and timing chip.

Event Parking – you could be working with our team of parking marshals to direct vehicles onto the site and into the designated venue parking areas

Start Line – or you could be assisting our Timing team to manage the flow of riders onto the Start line

Feedstation – you could be working with one of our teams setting up and running a feed station on the route. Our Feedstation Managers are very experienced and will run through what you’re doing at the start of your shift.

Finish Line – you could be helping to set up the finish line and/or presenting riders with their hard-earned finishers medal and goodies when they return to the event centre

Venue Pack Down – you could be assisting our Events Team to dismantle the event centre in the afternoon. This role requires some heavy lifting
