About the local hosting organizationDo you like sporting events? Come to the Salagou Triathlon that each year welcomes around 3000 people from all over the world! Around the lake you will participate in the organization of the event and will be able to attend the three races: swimming, cycling and running!
About the volunteer workYou work will consist in setting up the marking of the race courses and to help with the logistical organization of this eco-event. You will have to promote the ecological approach "No waste, no trash" and be ambassador of the sorting around the lake. You will also have to support the volunteer teams on the provisioning points for the athletes during the events, on the 10th and 11th of June.
Local accommodationYou will be accommodated under tents at the lake’s campsite. You can bring your own tent if you want, without forgetting your sleeping bag. You will participate in the preparation of meals and cleaning chores in turns.
