St. Anthony’s Triathlon In Need of Volunteers for 2020 Event Weekend
St. Petersburg, FL., (MARCH 2, 2020) – St. Anthony’s Triathlon is calling for volunteers to help at the 37th annual St. Anthony’s Triathlon weekend, to be held April 24-26, 2020. Approximately 1,000 volunteers are needed to assist the 4,000 athletes who will swim, bike, and run along St. Petersburg’s waterfront course.
Volunteers are needed to assist at areas including: Athlete check-in, Meek & Mighty, bike check-in, finish-line duty, athlete body marking, water stations, transition areas, and merchandise sales. Since the inception of the triathlon in 1983, volunteers have been an integral component to the success of a fun and successful St. Anthony’s Triathlon weekend.
Volunteers are needed at the St. Anthony’s Sports and Fitness Expo on April 24-26, the Meek & Mighty Triathlon on April 25, and at the main Triathlon, for both Olympic and Sprint distance races on April 26.
“The St. Anthony’s Triathlon is one of the biggest events in the surrounding St. Petersburg/Tampa area and we couldn’t pull it off without the help of our tremendous volunteers,” said Patrick McGee, the Triathlon’s manager and race director. “Being a volunteer also provides a glimpse into the exciting world of triathlon. You can’t help being inspired by witnessing these athletes of all ages and levels.”
All volunteers will receive a commemorative race T-shirt, access to the volunteer hospitality tent, and the opportunity to watch talented pro and amateur triathletes compete at this popular race. Volunteer schedules, directions, and parking instructions will be distributed before the race.
