Crankworx is looking for roughly 150 volunteers to help out at this year's festival.

In a release on Friday afternoon, organizers put out a call for help for the event, which runs from Aug. 12 to 21.

Crankworx communications and marketing manager Jennifer Smith said in an email positions were filling briskly.

"We are looking to fill about 300 positions and already have half - so way ahead of the game, which is nice," she said.

Volunteers can apply to register athletes, marshal courses, time races and host expos, among other duties. Shifts range from two to eight hours. Though there is no deadline to apply, organizers plan on sending a preliminary schedule in the middle of this month.

Volunteers must be at least 16 years old, and those under 18 must also present a waiver signed by a parent or guardian.

Those who help out will be invited to a wrap-up party where a heap of sponsor prizes and even a GIANT mountain bike will be given away.

As well, volunteers get up close and personal with the riders, Crankworx Events Inc. general manager Darren Kinnaird said in the release.

"This is a chance to get a front-row seat to the action, meet the athletes, connect with those who love mountain biking, and help invest in building our sport," he said.
