Parent Helpers/Volunteers:-
Running Triathlons/Tetrathlons is labour intensive and plenty of help is required if we want it to run as efficiently as possible. This can be achieved by spreading the load and having as many helpers as possible.

If you are able to help on the day, please let us know. If you require a specific role please let us know on the entry form.
