Become a volunteer


Since its beginnings in 2007, Raid In France has a staff made up of a hundred volunteers. Raid In France would not exist without this exceptional and unique involvement in the field of sports! Actually, this is thanks to commitment, time and energy that it requires before, during and after the race that the event can occur.

Raid In France family is everywhere

  • Route and reconnaissance of the trail: long weekends to look for the right path, the unforgettable view, the track that will make the differenc
  • Administrative management, accounting, secretarial work: our essential team members who work “in the shadows”
  • Communication and information: written pages, tons of video reports, pictures, posts on social media…
  • During the race, checkpoints management, teams control when they pass by: that is to say 2 or 3 nights outside in full autonomy
  • Marking and unmarking of the route: a team of keen sportsmen and women, all of them in fond of wide open spaces
  • Management of the main race checkpoint: “connected” people… who watch over the teams from their screens and inform the race management team, all night and all day long. They are the essential centerpiece for the successful conduct of the race
  • Logistics
  • Management and information of the competitors before, during and after the race…
  • Management and information of the volunteers before and during the race
  • Live translation of all the documents into English
  • And our essential “food team”… to prepare meals for everyone during the race.
