Volunteers needed for Cairns IRONMAN event
The Cairns Airport Adventure Festival, including the signature event the Cairns IRONMAN, is a major annual sporting festival in Cairns. Athletes from all over the world travel to Cairns to compete in the Cairns IRONMAN, which is considered one of the most gruelling challenges on a beautiful and dramatic course.
One of the best ways to get involved in the action (as well as gaining a front row seat to see the athletes) is to join the festival as a volunteer. Thousands of volunteers are needed to ensure the success of this event. Study Cairns encourages all international students to get involved.
Volunteer opportunities are available from 6 – 11 June, with most volunteers required on Sun 10 June.
This is your chance to be part of the atmosphere by being involved in an official capacity.
Being part of the Cairns Airport Adventure Festival promises to be a stimulating and rewarding experience. You’ll play an important role in the Cairns community, helping to make this event one of the most successful events on the world stage.
As a volunteer you may be asked to assist in the following areas:
• Event registration
• Guiding athletes as a course marshall
• Directing athletes at the finish line
• Manning water stations or turnaround points
• Guiding spectators at cross-over zones
This is always a spectacular event, and the enthusiasm of the enthusiastic volunteer army is crucial to its success.
