***We have now added a $20 volunteer fee.***

Volunteer Information

The Capital District Triathlon Club is 100% volunteer run.   To encourage all members to participate in triathlon club activities, $20 of the 2024 membership fee will be refunded at the end of season to each member who has completed at least one eligible volunteer slot.  The greatest need for volunteers is the club’s annual race in August.

Current Volunteer Eligible Events

  • Summer Spring Expo March 16-17 2024
  • Annual road clean up in Averill Park (May)
  • Assist in setting lake buoys out, prepping beach area (May)
  • Assisting at the desk for check in at the Lake (May to September) – each shift counts, 5:30pm to 7pm – help set up table, check in and break down if needed.
  • Crystal Lake Race (Thursday to Saturday opportunities exist) (August) ** For this event only:  if you are racing, you can receive volunteer credit by enlisting a non-member to work at the race.

How it works: 

The Club Treasurer will present a $20 cash refund to all club member volunteers at the end of season bash.  If members cannot make the party, cash can be collected at final swims (post bash) or via PayPal (after the bash/at end of season).

Any further questions should be directed to the Club President, Bill Drapeau.
