Volunteer
It takes a lot of dedicated individuals to put on an exceptional competition. We are always looking for interested volunteers who can help make these events the best they can possibly be. In particular, volunteers can help with Judging, Scoring, Set Up and Route Setting. If you would like to volunteer for the Midnight Burn in any one of these areas, please contact Randi Goldberg.
