Pivotal to its success every year is the number of volunteers that spend hours assisting in all sorts of ways, from handing out drinks to keeping the competitors on the course and everything in between.

Each year volunteers give up their time to assist and it is very much appreciated according to Adam Renn, Event Director of the Port Macquarie IM 70.3.

“They’re crucial to any of our Ironman events anywhere all over the world,” he said. “It’s as simple as this – if we don’t have them then the event doesn’t run.

“What makes Port special and what defines the character of the event is the way the community gets involved.

“It is what makes Port such a great location according to Mr Renn. Every year they receive get a great amount of support.

“They help to create some of the magic and it is one of the things we often hear in our athlete feedback which reflects on the success of the event,” he said.

“I’d say to anyone thinking about volunteering to please do so. We’d love to have you on board with the team and it is exactly that – a big team.”
