Please be prepared to be active and on your feet. Shift Duties Can Include:
Keep supplies stocked
Help with on-site giveaways to teams- goodies, medals, etc. - each race is different.

During Shift 2 you may be asked to help out at the Ragnar Trailer, located at the Finish Line. If assigned to the trailer, you will be unloading our Ragnar vehicles, sorting equipment, stacking cones - basically helping us get repacked and ready for the next race! Ragnar Trailer tasks do involve lifting 25lbs to 50lbs, so please let the volunteer manager know if the Ragnar Trailer isn’t a good fit.
