Federal Escape Triathlon Athlete Instructions

We Still Need Volunteers:  Be a part of the athletes’ journey as they reach their goals and cross the finish line. This event cannot happen without the support of volunteers like you! If you can help set up before the event, break down after the event, or during the event.  Let us know by emailing us at volunteer@TriFREAKS.com. Friends and family are welcome to help as well, and the more support we have the better your experience as the athlete will be as well.  All volunteers get: Volunteer T-Shirt, Event & Festival Atmosphere, Post Race Food, experience organizing events, discounts on our events and other benefits.  An overview of what to expect can be found at: http://trifreaks.com/volunteer/.

Thank you for your consideration and we look forward to seeing you all at the race!
