If your question is not answered in the Spartan Volunteer FAQ, you can contact the specific Volunteer Coordinator for your race. All Volunteer Coordinators can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please make sure to include the race location you are interested in when you email so we know which specific coordinator to connect you with and get your questions answered.
*Continental United States Volunteers receive (1) free race code per shift. You can use your free race at the event you volunteer, or at any future race. You will just be responsible for the $14 insurance fee and processing fees during sign-up.
