Hawk Island Triathlon hosted by South Lansing Community Development Association is a successful event every year thanks to our volunteers. We are looking for our 2019 volunteer crew for this year's race. As it has been said "Many hands make light work!"

On Friday May 31, 2019 we will need people who want to set-up the coarse, registration desk, food station, and place buoys in the lake. We transport all the race day items from our office to the park for set-up.

On Saturday, June 1, 2019 we are hosting the kids race. Volunteers will help with registration and racer check-in, numbering the entrants, helping set-up food items and serving. We will have volunteers in the water (if lifeguard certified), along the coarse to direct kids to transition areas, along the race course at water stations, finish line assistance to include water and snacks, and organizing the medals for medal presentations. Our day starts early usually by 7:00 am and ends usually by 1 or 2. We do have some flexibility for shifts for some positions.

On Sunday June 2, 2019 the adult race is held. Again our volunteers are similar to the kids race, except our bike race is done on the streets in South Lansing so we will have volunteers out at water stations and directional signs outside the park. Our day starts as early as 5:00 am. And breaking down all the race equipment starts around 2:00 pm.
