The folks at Tri-Maine are preparing for the annual Lobsterman Triathlon and Aquabike event at Winslow Park in Freeport and they're looking for help. But as always with volunteer gigs, the benefits go both ways.
You'll give your time, skills and support on either Thursday, Sept. 13, Friday, Sept. 14 or Saturday, Sept. 15 and you'll get: access to the best views on the race course, snacks and beverages during the event, Nike volunteer shirt, entry to the post-race festival, complimentary Gritty's brew at the post-race festival, $5 discount toward a future Tri-Maine event, traditional lobster bake meal for $25.
Jobs needing to be filled include: Transition area set-up on Thursday; course set-up on Friday; parking greeters, transition area support, safety kayakers, swim course support, lifeguards, motorcyclists & lead/sweep vehicles, bike course support, water stop support, run course support, past-race area set-up, finish line/post-race area support, lobster bake support, transition area breakdown, race breakdown.
If you have questions you can email volunteer manager Linda Sheehy at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Now in its 10th year, the Lobsterman begins at 9 a.m. on Sept. 15 and combines a 1.5K swim, 40K bike and 10K run. The race course includes some of the most scenic views around and the event was named one of the top Vacation-Worthy Triathlons by Fodors Travel Guides.Tweet
