We are giving away a 1-Bedroom suite at Timber Ridge Lodge good for four people with water park passes, plus a $100 Visa Gift Card. The more volunteers you recruit the more chances to win. Check the FAQ’s below for more details including other incentives.

DO YOU KNOW ABOUT THE GROUP INCENTIVE PROGRAM THAT INCLUDES MARKETING INCENTIVES?

The Abominable Snow Race is looking to form mutually beneficial relationships with businesses that like to get out of the office setting, gym or traditional work place and volunteer at the race.

Roles in the volunteer corps are great team building opportunities, plus all volunteers will leave with a sense of accomplishment. Volunteering will get people out of their traditional comfort zones and create another layer of connection among employees, friends or colleagues.

Please email Erin.McElroy@Abominablesnowrace.com for more information on Group Incentive Opportunities. Plus any ASR volunteer who brings new volunteers gets chances at the Volunteer Prize Raffle. 

Groups must include 10 volunteers, and ASR will work with the group to create an in-kind marketing sponsorship package in exchange for the volunteers.

I SIGNED UP FOR A RACE DAY SHIFT, WHERE WILL I BE ASSIGNED?

Race Day Volunteers will participate in a multitude of roles and support racers. As a volunteer, you might help reward participants with a finisher medal, a shirt, and take photos of racers with the Yeti. Volunteers may also help execute our base-camp activities, merchandise sales, registration, and bag check. Volunteers might also serve as obstacle assistants and course Marshall’s. Anyone placed at an obstacle will be paired with another volunteer. Every volunteer will receive warming breaks and be rotated to get the full Abominable Snow Race experience.

Don’t worry we will do our best to keep you warm, having fun and you will get the 360 Yeti Nation Experience!

When you signup to volunteer the online form will ask you to select your TOP Race Day Role and your Second Top Race Day Role. We will take these selection into account while assigning roles. We realize that some Yeti Volunteers will have some special requests to be accommodated for, and we will manage those on a case by case basis.

If serving as an obstacle assistant or course Marshall, you will be rotated every 90 minutes. No volunteer corps member will be left in the elements. Base Camp roles are either in tents or near the Chalet and Volunteer warming tent area. The volunteer warming tent will be stocked with snacks, warm beverages and water. This is a special place only for the volunteer corps! Lead Sherpa’s will be assigned to specific volunteer areas, so as a race day volunteer you will have a captain supporting your efforts. If by chance something happens on race day and you need to be rotated before the 90 minutes are up, your Lead Sherpa or an ASR Admin team member will assist you. Again, we won’t leave you out in the cold. Just like no RACER will be left behind, no Volunteer will be left on the Mountain Top!

Prior to race day, all volunteers will be emailed role instructions/directions, recommendations on how to dress and what to bring along, free parking instructions, and access to online pre-event training. 

If you have any questions, please email mail@abominablesnowrace.com.

WHAT SHOULD I BRING?

Our Exclusive Volunteer Tent will feature light snack options, water, hot beverage, heaters and hand warmers.  You are more than welcome to bring a backpack with additional supplies.  It’s not going to be a winter wonderland come race week, so please dress accordingly.  Also, please note, there are no coolers allowed onsite. Merchandise, food, and beer are all available for purchase, so bring plenty of cash. Volunteers will be given breaks and rotated to ensure you are warm and comfortable. We will email and post online suggestions for how to dress and other instructions and tips. Free free to bring along a bag camping chair. We will provide some chairs in specific areas, yet having one of your own could come in handy. 

I'M NOT SURE I CAN MAKE IT. HOW DO I CANCEL MY VOLUNTEER REGISTRATION?

Please do not register to Volunteer until you are 100% certain you can make it to the event! If you sign up and then decide you cannot or do not want to volunteer, please try find a replacement. Email Erin.McElroy@abominablesnowrace.com as soon as you know you are unable to attend.

Other obstacle races out there actually charge volunteers a $40 deposit to ensure that volunteers make it to the event. However, we TRUST our amazing VOLUNTEER CORPS. Our volunteers are dedicated and are an integral part of Yeti Nation. Your assistance ensures a fun and safe race. Plus you don’t want to miss out on the special Volunteer Incentives and gifts!

IF I PAY FOR A PARTICIPANT REGISTRATION NOW, CAN I GET A REFUND IF I REGISTER AS A VOLUNTEER?

Unfortunately, no, but you will get a free registration to use at a future event. Email us at mail@abominablesnowrace.com and we’ll send you a discount code for a future race.

IF I COMPLETE MY SHIFT BEFORE MY RACE TIME, CAN I USE THE FREE RACE REGISTRATION FOR THE 2018 EVENT?

Yes, you’ve earned it…so use it. But you must first complete two SETUP SHIFTS or at least ONE SETUP SHIFT and the MORNING RACE DAY SHIFT prior to your heat time. Please pick up your free registration coupon in the Volunteer Tent, and they will register you for the event.
