The world’s premiere track bike criterium is coming to London for another year. And you know what? YOU can be involved in this fantastic event!
As you most probably already know, the Red Hook Criterium is a four-race series championship that takes place in four cities around the world. Athletes from more than 40 countries around the world will participate in a technical race format, competing for the coveted championship title.
Connecting with the local cycling community in each city is important for race organizers and is what makes this event unique. Yet, the true heroes behind the scenes, are the dedicated crew of volunteers that follows the race in each city. Volunteers who build the circuit, manage the crowds, assist the athletes, and introduce a sense of community into the event.
“Volunteering for RHC was such a positive and fulfilling experience. From the camaraderie to the new and old friends, it was the best way to start and end the RHC weekend. Many of us competing enjoyed the calm before the storm; setting up a track we would later be competing on was a much-needed break between all the chaos. On many levels, it was incredibly cathartic to experience the grounds before people began spilling in for the festivities.” Kate, Brooklyn No.10 volunteer & 5K athlete
“As a volunteer watching raw space transform into race track is a pretty cool experience. I came back this year to help with setting up and breaking down because I understand how much time and hard work goes into creating an event like Red Hook Crit.” Kayla, Brooklyn No.10 volunteer & athlete
The Red Hook Criterium would not be possible without this assistance.
Volunteers will work alongside, the race director, logistic managers, circuit and safety experts, video & social media producers, merchandise staff, and athletes from around the world. The hours can be long (and sometimes in terrible weather) but the experience and people you meet will be unforgettable.
“I would absolutely recommend volunteering. It gives a whole new appreciation for the event, being a part of it rather than just spectating, and you make friends along the way! Rachel, Brooklyn No.10 volunteer” Rachel, Brooklyn No.10 volunteer
“If you want to be part of a passionate team and help support an event that is happening in your neighborhood or an event you are passionate about PLEASE REGISTER. Events wouldn’t happen without volunteers and giving some of your time is the best donation you could give to those athletes. Every person counts and you will feel so good about what you accomplished. I look forward every year to see the faces of some other volunteers I met the year before and the event as such a great vibe.” Marilou, volunteering as Parc Fermé Director in Brooklyn
