What does a volunteer?
Volunteer tasks are many and divers from start to finish in Strömsund and on each checkpoint in Strömsund and Storåbränna among others to guide in teams, help at road crossings, time notification and rapporting, tasks at the secretariatet, follow the race and blogwriting for the website.
A variety of tasks are to be done in cooperation with the veterinary team regarding inchecking control of the dogs, or with the scooter squad when the preparation of the trail is concerned. In most of the tasks it is of course an advantage if you are familiar with dogs.
A long distance race goes on non-stop, for 24 hours a day during 3 days, which means that we need volunteers continously, working in shifts. All help is appreciated, even be it for few hours, so don’t hesitate to contact us.
Volunteers are offered food and board. Bring with your sleeping bag, sleeping mat and headlamp!
