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!
