To all of our volunteers a special thank you - we couldn't do it without you.
You don't have to race to participate
One Step Beyond Promotions over the last few years have become one of the most successful multi sport event promoters in the UK. This is due not just to the amount of work that is done by the full time team but also due, in large to the outstanding contributions and commitment from our team volunteers.
Each year racers, spectators, officials and event staff express tremendous thanks and appreciation for the dedication, and level of enthusiasm and professionalism that our volunteers exhibit throughout the season.
We know what makes events a success and it is people and this is the reason why so many of our team of volunteers and officials return year after year. OK so we have a great team, but we are always looking to expand our team of enthusiastic, friendly and reliable people to ensure the easy going and professional atmosphere of the races. If you think that is you we would love to have you come and join us.
Many of our volunteers work tirelessly through the season on pretty much every race we have, but even if you can only help out on one race, we would still like to hear from you. Every little helps.
Our volunteers don't only create a safe environment for the athletes to compete in but they also have a lot of fun doing it. Not to mention the sense of accomplishment that comes with being part of something which is really appreciated by the athletes. We pride our self that our team is just that. A TEAM... with a team spirit and camaraderie that makes the events a lot of fun, not just for the athletes.
All volunteers receive a race crew T-shirt for each of the events which they help out on and where additional kit is provided for the athletes such as in the Outlaw, you can be assured of some extra goodies as well.

Volunteering as a group
Why not volunteer with a group of friends, workmates, triathlon club or community group! Why not run one of the feed stations as a club.
Volunteering as individuals
Alternatively why not just come and join the team and meet some new friends. If you are coming to watch, why not get involved and offer your services for a few hours.
