Our dedicated team of volunteers across the US and abroad has been key to bringing the XTERRA experience to more people in more places. As the sport grows the need for volunteers increases. This year we need people to help with pre-race and race-day activities. Please e-mail our volunteer coordinator. Tell us what you're interested in doing and what you're availability is. We'll try to find a place for you at XTERRA. We hope you can join us at this year's XTERRA Southeast Championship.
