The festival is one of the biggest highlights of ZTrek. The Festival Crew directs riders into the festival, checks them in, passes out chocolate milk, and helps with merchandise processing. Since you need to be at the finish area early, there isn’t time for you to ride the entire event.
Technical Support Crew
8:15am – 4:00pm
5 volunteers needed
Technical Support Crew are mechanics who patrol the course in their vehicles and provide technical support to riders who experience mechanical problems on the course. Since you are out on the course all day, you can’t ride a bicycle in the event unless we approve you to provide support via bicycle.

Route Marshals & Sweep Riders
7:00am – 5:30pm (route dependent)
12 volunteers needed
Route Marshals help provide traffic control and rider support during the ride. May include initiating phone calls for support, assisting with basic bike maintenance (e.g., flat tires) and generally watching for hazardous conditions on the route. 4 positions are available for each distance; 25, 45, 65 and 100 miles. Start times will be staggered to ensure good distribution of marshals along the routes. The marshal riding in the sweep position will make sure that there are no riders left on the course. They begin after the last wave of riders leave and follow the last rider(s) in. Registration is free as you keep an eye out for the safety of your fellow riders.
