About the role
The MS Brissie to the Bay bike ride has been a popular event on the Brisbane fundraising event scene over the last 30 years. Participants are able to choose between distances of 10km, 25km, 50km, 100k or 130km, with each course tackling different challenges and filled with different scenery from Brisbane city all the way out to the Wynnum foreshore.
Date: Sunday 12th June, 2022
Event site: Musgrave Park, South Brisbane
Course Marshal Locations:
Brisbane, Morningside, Norman Park, Cannon Hill, Chandler, Wynnum, Cleveland, Redland Bay, Victoria Point
As part of our event, all riders are sent their Rider pack pre event, which includes their unique bib numbers, the rider booklet and any merchandise they have purchased. With over 6000 riders taking part, this is a massive undertaking and needs plenty of hands to assist in getting these packs packed and ready to mail.
Our Event Day Crew member roles are many and varied – we have on course roles, such as course marshals and drink station assistants and event site roles, such as start line marshals and merchandise handlers.
Shifts are varied dependent on the exact role, however the event runs from 5:00am – 2:30pm, so the shifts will be within this time frame.
**What we’re looking for in a volunteer:**
We’re looking for people who are friendly and approachable, who are always smiling and who are prepared to give our participants the best event experience ever. You must work well under pressure, be willing to take direction and be able to think on your feet. Speaking of feet, you will be standing on them for the duration of your shift, so you should be comfortable with this too.
We recommend that if you select an on course Event Crew Member role that you look to pair up with a friend – it’s always more fun with company on course.
