Volunteer at Hit the Downs

Volunteer opportunity

Hit the Downs MTB

We depend on hundreds of volunteers, people just like you, who can lend a hand. Could you make a difference, today?

What’s the role?

There’s lots of roles on offer for the day! Please state which role you would be interested in when applying, or let us know if you’re up for anything too!

  • Set up and pack down
  • Registration
  • Refreshment stops
  • Cheer squad and medals

We need volunteers from 6am to 6pm – the timings for the roles will be confirmed closer to the time.


Some of the roles will be based on the course across the South Downs – with limited accessibility as you’ll be required to walk across 1 mile of rough terrain. Please let us know of your accessibility requirements when you apply and we’ll be able to match you with the best role.
