Margaret River Ultra Marathon

Saturday 11th May, Sunday 12th May

  • Line in the Sand (LITS) https://lineinthesandgroup.org/ is calling for volunteers to help with the Margaret River Ultra Marathon https://margaretriver.rapidascent.com.au/ and raise funds for the GCBCs Feral Animal Management Program.

  • LITS is once again the charity partner for the event, which gives them an opportunity to raise money for programs in the region. LITS is seeking your help in raising volunteers. The MR Ultra will donate to LITS $100 for each half day volunteer and $200 for each full day volunteer that LITS introduces to them.

  • Most of the work involves directing runners in and out of aid stations, manning aid stations, competitor registrations and helping at the finish line at Howard Park. There also roles “sweeping” and checking the course. If you get in early, you can choose exactly where you want to be positioned, and also nominate what specific roles and tasks you would like to do.

  • There are a number of locations/days/times where people can be deployed but the main spots are as follows:
