Event information

Registration for this event closes at Wed 07 Aug 2024 12:00.

Alice Springs Running and Walking Club is excited to host Alice Springs'  backyard ultra event, the Red Centre Wringer!

We are in need of some local or even visiting legends to help the event run safely and smoothly. If you’re not able or not keen to run in the event but would like to get involved this is your time! 

Register your interest in specific roles and times available and from there we can work out with you what positions and times may best suit you.

Volunteers will also receive a token of our appreciation!

Role Descriptions

  • Event setup: helping set up tents and marquees at the event up at Telegraph Station. 
  • Assistant Race Director: want to dabble in race directing, a bit of aid station support and other random tasks that may come up to support our runners to go out for that next lap? Assistant Race Director might be for you!
  • Timing Operator: a critical but largely relaxed role! Our timing operators are responsible for ensuring the race clock is working on the hour and making sure our runners know when to be back at the start line and ready to go around again!
  • Aid Station Attendant: someone has to keep the runners fed and watered when they come in between laps! Also a largely cruisy role!
  • Sweep: from mid afternoon Saturday onwards we will require a sweep to check no tired runners have thrown in the towel out on the course. Can be done by mountain bike or on foot.


Time Slots

Back yard ultras can be long events! Because we don't know how long this event will go for, there's plenty of flexibility in available times. Time slots are listed as 8 hours but we appreciate any and all support so if you're only available for a few hours, we'd love to have you!

Your help is truly appreciated. This event cannot run without the support of people like you, so thank you!
