Triathlon: Ironman France - The Volunteers Still Say Yes!

On June 28th, Nice will welcome the 5th edition of the Ironman France, a major event regarding the talent of the athletes coming from all over the world but also due to the dedication of the volunteers, who make of this race an unforgettable moment.

For this new edition, 1500 volunteers are necessary to welcome 2500 athletes gathered around a great challenge: 3,8 km of swim in the Mediterranean Sea, 180 km of bike in the picturesque villages of the hinterland of Nice and 42,2 km of run on the mythical Promenade des Anglais.

800 persons volunteered in 2005 for the very first edition. They were 1500 last year. Present in all the key sectors: start numbers, aid stations, marshals, etc... they often help the athletes to finish the race thanks to their support, their encouragement and their smile. "Friendly volunteers were always there to help us" said Yannick, competitor in 2008.

Volunteering means giving time, welcoming and supporting, to help the athletes to reach their goal. Then they share unique moments of solidarity and complicity. A volunteer represents a combination of the desire to contribute to a sport event and the will to live an unforgettable human adventure.

Save the date of June, 28th to testify of this incredible solidarity or to be a part of Ironman!

Until June, 27th registration and details of the missions on > Volunteers.
