Race Volunteers

The Paris to Ancaster Race is one of Canada's Biggest Cycling Events
We Need Your Help!

Canada's Spring Cycling Classic - Paris to Ancaster is just around the corner and we want you to be a part of our 27th Annual Race Weekend on April 25 & 26, 2020.

Like most events, P2A succeeds because of the volunteers that contribute their time and effort each year - we couldn't do this without you!

If you would like to be a part of the race, without the mud, we have a variety of opportunities for you. To sign up, click on the role below that interests you the most and it will take you to an external website called Sign Up.com. From here, you can pick the days and times that are convenient for you. You will receive a confirmation email for your shift.


Registration Assistants - Registration Assistants are essential to ensuring our riders get everything they need prior to the ride! Your task during your shift will be to welcome riders, ensure they get their kit and answer any questions they may have regarding race weekend. We are looking for volunteers who are at least 16 years of age.

Lunch Assistants - We are looking for friendly individuals to help us serve lunch to the 2,500 plus riders that will finish the race! Duties include setting up lunch, handing it out and clean up. We are looking for volunteers that are 16 years of age or older.

Start Line Support Volunteers - Help to guide hundreds of very excited racers into their designated Wave staging area. Walk the Waves up to the start line. Help answer questions about the start procedure.

VIP Support - Each year we have a dedicated group or riders who opt for the VIP Pro experience and we are looking for volunteers to help ensure they truly receive a VIP experience from start to finish! This includes excellent registration, customer service and various other tasks throughout the weekend. We are looking for volunteers who are over the age of 18.

Race Kit Packing - Prior to everyone getting muddy, we need to pack their race plates, some goodies and information all together for each rider. We are looking for volunteers over 16 years of age to help us with this crucial part of the event. Snacks and refreshments provided.

Course Marshals - This event could not happen without the amazing support of course marshals who help direct the riders where to go! Must be at least 16 years of age or accompanied by an adult. Ideal for small groups.

All volunteers are eligible for draw prizes. All volunteers will receive a T-shirt and have lunch provided.
