Volunteer

Be a part of something special – do something amazing to help others realise their potential!

The task of taking on a 3.8km swim, 180km bike and 42.2km run is daunting in itself, but doing it without the supporters on the sidelines and the teams of ‘volunteers’ who are there directing traffic, assisting in transition, handing out food at aid stations and supporting athletes in recovery would be a much tougher task.

Challenge Galway want to bring communities together, encourage an active and healthy lifestyle and play an instrumental part in growing the sport of triathlon in Ireland. Together we will build the sustainable event that Galway so richly deserves, to the benefit of the local community, both socially and economically; everyone working together to make dreams come true – At our sister event, Challenge Roth in Germany, the volunteers get so much satisfaction out of the experience, that some have worked on the event for over 10 years!

Adopt an Aid Station

Aid stations are an athlete’s lifeline, an oasis on their marathon journey. It’s where they get water and food to fuel them towards the finish line. Challenge Galway is offering locals/supporters/companies/ sports clubs the opportunity to adopt an aid station. Local non-profit organisations can use it as a fundraising opportunity or to raise awareness of their cause, businesses can use it as a team building exercise for their staff and/or brand awareness or a bunch of friends can use it as a fun day out. Dress up, theme it, name it, bring lots of energy and a smile. Each aid station needs six people – there’s no maximum age but there is a minimum age limit of 10 (18 on the bike course and aid stations situated on roads). All you need to do is contact the office by clicking  here – as easy as that!
