Volunteer Perks

As a thank you for your help, you will receive a free race for volunteering. 

On the day of your volunteer assignment, you must register with the volunteer coordinator in the morning and unsubscribe at the end of the shift. Only then you will receive your free start.


There are special incentives for helpers who help on race days several times a year (see picture).

After registering with the code, you can only transfer the race via customer service. Since MaxFun does not receive payment from you, deferring your paid amount is not possible. Accordingly, you would receive a 0 € credit coupon code over the normal deferral. So if you want to change to another race within the 12 months, let us know via EMAIL.
