Now in our 23rd year, the Armed Forces Cycling Classic is grateful to all our volunteers who help make this event happen! From course marshals to registration support, we have been fortunate to have scores of individuals come out and help lend a hand so that we can keep the route safe, process participants through registration, hand out t-shirts, and so much more. If you have a few hours to spare, and want to be a part of the rich tradition of the Armed Forces Cycling Classic, please consider signing up as a volunteer. We offer many ways to help that should have little impact to your schedule, or your ability to enjoy or participate in the event. Please review the Registration Form below, and select the job that best fits your abilities or schedule. We will follow-up with more details. All volunteers will receive an event t-shirt. Tech-T’s (right) for all those working at the event on Saturday and Sunday (limited supply, so for first 50 to register), and the red cotton t-shirt (below) for those working packet prep/pick-up on Wednesday through Friday.
