Want to be a part of this special day but aren’t going to run?

The Hillary could not happen without volunteers – we have more than 120 of them in action over the weekend.

You can volunteer as an individual who just wants to help out. Alternatively you may be part of a group that wants to fundraise. The Hillary is a non-profit event with proceeds going to a trust to support youths in our community to get out into the bush. So in the same way we love to support other community groups by giving them a donation for help on the day.

All volunteers get a racepack bag with a packed lunch and a water bottle as well as heapings of gratitude from us here at race headquarters.

Some of the volunteer roles are:

  • marshaling on the course
  • helping at aid stations
  • helping at Kauri Dieback Disease footwash stations
  • assisting at registration the day before race day
  • tail-end charlie (all sorted for this year)
  • shuttle bus driving (all sorted for this year)
  • making lunches for the volunteers (all sorted for this year)

If you are keen to help for any part of the day please email us at volunteers@thehillary.co.nz or message us on our facebook page THE HILLARY
