Going the Distance with USA Triathlon

We’ll be honest – the last mile we ran didn’t make it below the 10 minute mark (embarrassing, we know). But while running isn’t exactly our forte, we here at VolunteerLocal have serious admiration for those committed to it. Which is part of the reason why we were so thrilled to partner with USA Triathlon last year. Founded in 1982, USA Triathlon connects with nearly 500,000 members each year, and sanctions more than 4,300 races – that’s a lot of miles!

Speaking of serious mileage, USA Triathlon’s Duathlon National Championships are happening in just a couple weeks, from Thursday, June 23rd through Saturday, June 25th in Bend, Oregon. The Championships are the culmination of the Duathlon season, which exhibits some of the top Duathletes in the United States.

Whether you love or hate running, we’re calling on all volunteers to show off their own serious skills. USA Triathlon is looking for enthusiastic folks to assist with packet pick up, aid stations, the awards ceremony, and general race support. In return, volunteers will receive a sweet t-shirt, delicious food, and the chance to get to watch some incredible athletes.
