Thanks for your interest in volunteering at Michigan’s Coast to Coast Gravel Grinder! We’re especially in need of volunteers in Gladwin, Marion, Big M, and the evening and late night (up to 3:30 am) shifts in Ludington. Volunteers receive $15 per hour in race credits towards a future Michigan Adventure Racing event for themselves, a friend or the charity partner for the race, and some “swag” to be determined. Those driving a substantial distance (e.g., sweeper wagon) to help with critical roles can request mileage reimbursement as well.


Roles at the checkpoint locations and most other roles are not (or don’t have to be) full-day shifts. Riders will all come through and then you are done (or follow us to Ludington if you want to volunteer at the exciting finish!). Use the list below to get a general idea of roles and timing and see the BikeReg sign up page under Register for specific roles and times.
