Wasa Triathlon needs volunteers

As everyone knows it’s impossible to pull off a successful community event without volunteers. It is also true that with so many events having taken a hiatus during COVID-19, or postponed to different dates, gathering up all those volunteers again can be challenging.

Wasa Triathlon organizers have put out the call for volunteers to help with the race weekend, June 11 and 12, 2022.

You can choose to volunteer for the TriKids event or the adult events. That would involve either race day volunteering, or Friday race bag pick up and set up. Or both.

Organizers promise a rewarding experience, as well as a shirt, snacks and refreshments. Not to mention that being a volunteer gives you the best access to spectating.
