Approximately 5,000 volunteers in communities throughout the state participated in last year’s second-annual race, making it seamless and successful from start to finish and establishing it as the largest sporting event in the state of Colorado. In each of the host cities, as many as 500 local volunteers were recruited to help staff the race.
Volunteers looking for an opportunity to participate in the race can apply online for positions at www.prochallenge.com/volunteer-signup. The majority of volunteers are needed to serve as course marshals, providing support for the professional course marshals that travel with the tour and the local law enforcement authorities in each city. Course marshal volunteers have an opportunity to be on the race route, close to the cyclists, with responsibility for monitoring pedestrian traffic, barricades and street closures.
This year Stage 6 will be held in Northern Colorado. Stage 6 will begin at The Ranch in Loveland, move through Windsor and Estes Park, and finish in Fort Collins.
