Every team is required to provide a volunteer in order to start the race. (Not required for solo runner.) Volunteers are crucial to the safety, as well as the joy, of the Gorgeous Wine Country Relay. There are two ways for teams to meet their volunteer requirement:
- Recruit a volunteer from your teams' friends/family/etc. Team Captains have until June 23 to recruit a volunteer. (Teams registering after 6/23/19 should have their volunteer information ready with registration.)
- A limited number of teams may Sponsor a volunteer via a $100 contribution to a local Charity Partner. SOLD OUT! Email your Team and Captain's name if you'd like to be notified if additional Sponsored volunteers become available.
recruit a volunteer
Race volunteers generally have at least as much fun as the runners! Teams should recruit a volunteer who:
Volunteers are stationed either at an Exchange to direct vans and runners, on course to direct runners, or at the start or finish for set-up, operations, and take-down. (Unfortunately, they are not suitable for bringing children.)
Volunteers are invited - and encouraged! - to join us for the celebration at the finish party and enjoy a free wine tasting!
A few days after the volunteer deadline, volunteers will be sent a link to a form where they can select their own position and sign the Volunteer Release.

sponsor a volunteer
When you Sponsor a volunteer, you are supporting great nonprofit organizations and schools in the communities we run through. 100% of your Sponsorship funds are contributed to the organization providing your team's volunteer. Contributions are made to Charity Partners based on their volunteer capacity.
