We look forward to seeing you at the Susan Suduk OneDay to Conquer Cancer and we guarantee that volunteering at the event will be an experience you won’t forget.
As part of the start team, you will be the welcoming face of the OneDay event and will be greeting participants to start off their experience. It will be an early morning start so it is important to amp them up for the big day. This role involves marshalling participants on arrival to the event site and directing riders and walkers to the appropriate starting group.
Is this role right for you?
We will be providing a service to participants who wish to have their belongings cloaked and the volunteers will assist in storing participants clothing during the course of the event and return participant baggage after the event.
As part of the registration team, volunteers will assist participants picking up their registration kits by identifying participants on a checklist and distributing their participant identifications. This role could be pre-event or during the early morning of the day of the event depending on your shift availability. We will brief you to answer any queries the participants may have in regards to the event.
Volunteers at our pit stops will cheer and greet participants as they stop to rehydrate at the 25km, 50km and 75km mark of the route. They help distribute snacks to riders, provide assistance in refilling water bottles, offer sunscreen for sun protection and clearing up the station after the event.

Course Marshalls are crucial to the operations of the event as they are positioned strategically along the ride and walk event route and ensure the participants feel safe and supported on the course. It is a fun and interactive position where you ensure riders and walkers stay on the course by guiding them if necessary. They also provide a point of contact and information for motorists and members of the public entering the event course.
You will be exposed to the weather so make sure you prepare for rain and sunlight with proper sun protection and hydration is a must.
This team is a group of event support vehicles that will provide assistance to participants if needed and motivate the participants along the route with music and decorations. Volunteers are encouraged to provide own vehicle (preferably an SUV or Mini-Van).
