Join the breca wanaka event team

Being part of the Breca Wanaka Event Team is rewarding and fun. If you can commit to a full day of volunteering you will receive a t-shirt, lunch and free entry to a Breca Swimrun race the following year.


The volunteer brief will take place on Friday 24th March 2017.

We will explain the race day plan, the roles, communications channels, safety procedures, and answer any questions you might have.

If you are signing up as a race day (Saturday) volunteer, it is vital that you can attend the brief on Friday evening.   


Date: Friday 24th March
Hours: 08:00 - 15:00

You will spend the day before the race marking the route, working in pairs. You will need suitable outdoor clothing, a smartphone, be confident route finding with a map and capable of hiking on the trail for a few hours.

You will be briefed before heading out and don’t need to attend the Friday evening brief. 

As the hours are shorter than the other volunteer roles you will receive a 60% discount on entry to a Breca Swimrun race the following year.


Date: Friday 24th March
Hours: 09:00 - 20:00

You will help prepare for race day, for example setting up gazebos and flags, assembling finishers bags, preparing checkpoint equipment, preparing volunteer packed lunches. You will mainly be indoors so do not need technical outdoor clothing or skills.

If you are volunteering in the evening you will help at the race registration, checking teams off on entry lists, inspecting their kit and handing out race bibs.

You will be briefed on arrival and don’t need to attend the Friday evening brief.


Date: Saturday 25th March
Hours: 07:45 - 20:00

As a race day volunteer, you will be marshalling at swim transitions, checkpoints and the start & finish of the course. Working in pairs, you will be outdoors for most of the day so will need suitable clothing and a smartphone. If you have a car, please let us know.

You must attend the Friday evening brief.

The support car will patrol the course, supporting other volunteers, collecting any teams that withdraw and transporting them to the finish area. You will need a smartphone and you will be compensated for fuel.

You must attend the Friday evening brief.
