Become a Great Alabama 650 Volunteer

Putting on the longest paddle race in the United States isn’t easy. Every year, we rely on the hard work and dedication of our race volunteers to make the Great Alabama 650 safe and successful! Of course, we have a good time too. If you’re interested in joining the family and being part of something truly unique, come back and fill out a volunteer application in July 2024!

Volunteer Opportunities

We have numerous roles at various locations throughout the route. Shifts are flexible, and volunteers that work a minimum of one 8-hour shift will receive a Great Alabama 650 volunteer t-shirt!

  • Registration Volunteers: Help the racers get checked in and ready for the race of a lifetime.
  • Portage Chiefs/Checkpoint Volunteers: Be an active part of the race, assisting racers and their crews at race portages.
  • Crewmembers for Racers: All racers are required to have at least one crewmember assist them on land throughout the journey.
  • Safety Boat Volunteers: During the race, we like to have boats follow at the back to make sure racers are safe. If you have a boat and are interested, let us know!
