Dunes City gearing up for seventh-annual triathlon

City searches for essential volunteers

March 9, 2019 — Dunes City will be home to the 7th annual Oregon Dunes Triathlon and Duathlon on Saturday, June 8. Though the signature event is months away, organizers are already looking for volunteers to help at locations throughout the venue.

Volunteers are essential to ensuring that the races run smoothly and safely. In addition, volunteers play a vital support role for all of the participating athletes by providing encouragement and direction; many of the athletes have said that they return to the Tri/Du each year because they appreciate the enthusiastic volunteers.

Most volunteers work only half a day and all volunteers receive a free commemorative T-shirt.

Volunteers are needed between 6 a.m. and 1 p.m. on race day.

Anyone who has a few hours to spare and wants to be part of an exciting and fun event should call Dunes City Hall at 541-997-3338 to sign up.

Returning volunteers should register early to make sure they get their favorite spot.
