Thank you for your interest in volunteering at the 2021 Gateway Cup. The Gateway Cup would not exist without the contributions of our volunteers and community. To ensure the 36th annual races roll off the line on time, safely, and with an exciting environment, over 300 volunteers are needed! Guaranteed to not miss out on the action and speed, volunteers are needed for course support positions. With flexible, 3-6 hour shifts, Friday-Monday, there’s a position for everyone! All volunteers receive a 2021 event shirt, a $10 Big Shark gift card, snacks, and bottled water. In addition, all-day volunteers will receive a free lunch and post-shift brew. Join us for multiple days and score additional gear and perks! 

8/31/2021 Update: Currently Friday, Saturday, and Sunday volunteer positions are full. Monday is only 75% filled. Thank you to all who helped to fill those positions. We still need volunteer help for all shifts on Monday’s events but especially Monday shift 1, 8:45-12p.  Below is the form to fill out. If you have any questions, please email Volunteer details for this weekend’s events will be emailed out on Wed/Thurs of this week. 

9/2/2021 Update: All pre-race volunteer communication containing details about shifts has been emailed out.
