Thanks to all the exceptional volunteers who helped with the Cadel Evans Great Ocean Road Race 2023.
We are on the hunt for exceptional volunteers to assist with the delivery of the 2024 Cadel Evans Great Ocean Road Race. As a volunteer, you’ll not only get to be part of this international sporting event, but all volunteers go home with an event t-shirt, a cap, and hopefully some wonderful memories! Plus, fundraising incentives are available for your community club, group or charity.
Each year, an army of volunteers make this event possible, fulfilling the roles detailed below.
Shifts will be made available for selection in the last quarter of 2023 – so time to gather the team!
