The 2017 River City Realty Spring Sprint & Kids of Steel Triathlon

The Kamloops Spring Sprint is their longest running race in 
Kamloops, with the Sprint and Team Sprint being 700 m Swim/ 
20 km Bike / 5 km Run.  The Kamloops TriClub is  always looking for volunteers to help with race planning, setup, race day tasks, and take down. Without volunteers, this race would not be successful. The main role that needs filling is the Volunteer 
Coordinator.

The 2017 Kamloops Kids of Steel Triathlon is looking for volunteers on race day, 
June 11th, to help in a variety of positions. Most specifically, we will need course marshals who will be wearing high-visibility vests, assigned to a specific station on the bike or run course, and direct the athletes through the course. Each volunteer marshal will be given a card that outlines the various roles and responsibilities at each station, so there is no guess work. Many will also be assigned radios for contact with the race director, and the emergency cell phone numbers.

The KOS is a FUN event, that introduces the wonderful sport of triathlon to the youth in our community, aged 4 to 18. Please come with a smile on your face, ready to cheer every athlete through their race.

Date: Sunday, June 11th | Time: 7:00am - 2:30pm | Location: Brock Pool
