Course team

Marker: sporty and good company, you are able to walk fast and safely for a whole day without failing, up to 25 km, and over big differences in altitude. The course marking is done from Monday to Thursday the week before the race in teams of two or three. Good knowledge of the course recommended.

Course setter: on Friday, before the start of the races or the passage of the runners on certain sections on Saturday and Sunday, your mission will be to check the markings in place. Excellent knowledge of the course and good physical condition required.

Closer: in a team of two or three, you will ensure the safety of the last runners at the end of the race, you will accompany them in their adventure while strictly respecting the race regulations. You are equipped with a radio to inform the race headquarters of your progress and in case of problems. You are able to manage withdrawals and remain calm in the event of an emergency or injury. You know the area perfectly and the means of repatriation. You have a great physical and mental shape to support sometimes some states of mind 😉 According to the sections, you can also be brought to unmake the courses (thus envisage a big backpack to carry the flags which you can sometimes leave on certain points of provisioning or signalling).

Signaller: in the mountains or on the road, you ensure the safety of the runners. You are the link on the ground between the race headquarters and the participants. You are patient and like to play cards, especially in the mountains where the posts can last a long time because it is difficult to plan rotations. Depending on the post, you will be required to clock the runners with the tool provided by the timekeeper. You must know how to use a radio and be able to manage withdrawals.

Leisure Centre Team

Number collection: on Friday, Saturday and Sunday, if you like people and have enough smiles under your elbow to welcome the participants. A good knowledge of the event is always a plus to inform them as well as possible.
Refreshment and catering: pros of the service to feed and water the participants and accompanying persons, we need you all weekend, especially during the day but also a little bit at night.

Shop: the association trusts you to run the event shop, which offers textiles and goodies in the trail colours.

Information point: a sense of welcome and excellent knowledge of the event are essential. If you are not completely up to speed, we can give you a little training beforehand, and we will never be far away!

Runners’ arrival: you will have to be very careful at this point to welcome runners who have sometimes spent one or two nights outside. On the programme: refreshments, handing out of finishers’ prizes and weight-loss bags. Standing, passive and active, you will have to stay focused and adapt to the flow of arrivals.

Supply team

In more or less wild places, in a gym, in front of huts or under a shelter, whatever the conditions, you are ready to take care of the runners and their injuries.

Your tasks: checking in runners, supplying runners with food and drink, managing drop-outs, welcoming accompanying persons, monitoring the markers upstream and downstream, managing time barriers.

Logistics team
At the heart of the event, the shadowy posts, those of preparation and logistics. Welcome to the backstage area! Before the event, we will need some small hands to prepare the race numbers and runners’ bags, but also some big hands to prepare and distribute the food at the refreshment station, to set up the start/finish sites and to handle the materials. We also count on you or others to leave the sites at the end as they were at the beginning, i.e. clean and tidy 😉
Reasonable and friendly drivers are also needed during the day and night to ensure the shuttle service between the drop-off points and the Samoens leisure centre.
