SALT LAKE CITY (June 3, 2019) – Individuals and groups are needed to fill as many as 1,200 volunteer shifts for the 2019 Larry H. Miller Tour of Utah, scheduled from Aug. 12-18. A variety of positions are being offered by Local Organizing Committees (LOC) that are hosting stage starts and finishes at this summer’s international cycling event. Volunteer applications are being accepted online at the Tour of Utah website. (https://www.tourofutah.com/experience/2019-volunteers)
Volunteer assignments are available for one or multiple shifts. Group assignments for families, corporations, clubs and civic organizations are encouraged to inspire teamwork and support the local community. Each LOC will provide training in advance of race week and manage assignments to best meet the time and talent of volunteers. Every volunteer will receive a commemorative Tour of Utah T-shirt, hat, sunglasses, sunscreen products and a 12” x 12” clear cinch sack, which can be reused at most stadiums for personal items. Snacks and water will also be provided daily.
Snowbird Resort will host pre-race festivities Aug. 10-11, as well as the Prologue on Aug. 12. Other races days will be hosted across northern Utah: North Logan City (Aug. 13); Brigham City and Powder Mountain Resort (Aug. 14); Antelope Island State Park and North Salt Lake (Aug. 15); Salt Lake City (Aug. 16); Canyons Village at Park City Mountain (Aug. 17), and Park City (Aug. 18).
The largest number of shifts available are for course marshals. Volunteers in these positions find themselves close to the action, and along some courses will be able to see the race pass multiple times. The recommended age for volunteers is 18 and older. Applicants must sign a waiver, or have a signature provided by an adult or legal guardian if the applicant is 17 years of age or younger.
General registration will remain open through early August. A “Frequently Asked Questions” section is provided on the website to provide descriptions of specific positions, opportunities for groups and more information. Individuals interested in working as traveling course marshals for all seven days of race week should send a request via email to [email protected].
