Role is pretty self-explanatory. Volunteer photographers are expected to own a camera (mobile phone cameras do not count).
- Checkpoint assistants
Stationed at the various checkpoints islandwide. Check in participants on the digital system, hand out stickers for their bibs, and provide the walkers with assistance if required. Keep the organisers updated about the activity of the checkpoints.
- Event Day Registration crew
Check the attendance of the walkers and sign them in. Might be deployed as checkpoint assistants when the registration booth closes.
- Logistics crew
Must be physically fit. Duties involve setting up and tearing down of the various checkpoints. The job also requires loading and unloading of moderately heavy equipment and logistics.
- Participants' welfare
Help participants finish their walks. You will assist the Logistics team with providing food, water, etc, to participants along their routes.
Stationed at various points along the designated routes. Direct walkers to the path they are required to take. Smile and cheer for the walkers. So it would be a bonus if volunteers have lovely smiles.
Follow the last person/team on foot. Look out for participants, remind participants of checkpoint cut-off times, cheer on those who are lagging and alert the LTAW team if there are any issues or drop-outs along the way.
- First aid and safety
Trained in first aid and able to provide external care (muscle rub/spray, minor cuts). May be stationed at checkpoints or go on bicycle along stretches of flat paths to ensure that participants are well.
- Event shirt
