Volunteering

Volunteering is a great part of being involved in any sports club – it’s vital to the running of the club and its events. It gives you a chance to give something back to your club, and you get to see what goes into keeping each race safe.

It is a requirement for all PNP Club Members who have identified road as their primary or secondary discipline to volunteer for a two races during the racing season, either as a race manager or to assist with marshalling. Without adequate club member support in volunteering at races we may not be able to deliver events for you to participate in.

You can select a race to volunteer for by emailing the Road Volunteer Coordinator with your name, contact details and the date of the race that you would like to volunteer for. It is club policy that if you do not select a race to volunteer at, one will be allocated to you.

Members can opt out of their volunteering obligations by paying a fee of $50 per duty ($50 for one race or $100 for two.). This money will be spent on paying non-club members to marshall.

If you choose to take this option contact the Road Volunteer Coordinator to arrange payment.

If you cant make your date, it is your responsibility to find a replacement in your absence, and to inform the Volunteer Coordinator so that Race Manager knows. Its not fair to leave it up to the Race Manager.

Let us know if you are keen to manage a race when you volunteer. As a race manager you will receive plenty of support and we will provide you with an updated race managers manual detailing the responsibilities of the role and also a detailed traffic management plan for your course.

The volunteer does not have to be you, it might be one of your supporters that will be cheering from the roadside at a race anyway.

Failing to meet your volunteer obligation may see you being denied the ability to race future club races.

Select your volunteer date and email to the Road Volunteer Coordinator then hit the road for some training. Looking forward to seeing you all at the races!

Details on each race are on the calendar.

 

Race Managers, please refer to the Race Managers Handbook v2 before you carry out your volunteer duty as a Race Manager.
