VOLUNTEER OPPORTUNITIES

- Photographers/ Videographers

Volunteer photographers/videographers are expected to own a digital SLR camera (mobile phone cameras do not count) and other relevant equipment such as tripods. You will be expected to process the photos and upload them into a shared drive promptly after your shift.

- Checkpoint assistants 

Stationed at the various checkpoints islandwide. Guide participants on using the new QR code check-in system and provide them with assistance if required. Keep the organisers updated about the activity of the checkpoints. 

- Event Day Registration crew 

Be prepared to arrive earlier than the rest! We will help set up registration booths and then guide walkers to check-in. You are likely to be deployed as checkpoint assistants or marshals after registration ends. 

- Logistics crew
Must be physically fit. Duties involve the 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.

- Marshals 

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.

- Sweepers 

Must be physically fit and conditioned for long distance walking. Patience is a must! Follow the last person on foot. Look out for participants and remind them 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.

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.
