Maverick Sports Promotions is looking for volunteers to help with the Firecracker 50 Mountain Bike Race in Breckenridge on July 4th.

The event returns this year after a cancellation in 2020 due to the coronavirus. The race – which features solo runners and two-person relay teams competing over two 25-mile laps – traditionally kicks off the July 4th Parade from the town of Breckenridge on Main Street.

Volunteers are needed for the two days leading up to the race as well as throughout July 4th. The dismantling and course cleaning shifts are also available on July 5th.

Positions include, but are not limited to, course pre-check, course aid stations, yardage, runner registration, finish line timing and post-race clean-up.

Maverick Sports Promotions event director Jeff Westcott said volunteers are also needed at the Carter Park recycling and composting stations on race day to make the race a zero waste event.

Westcott said all volunteers will receive an event t-shirt and bike socks. Food and drinks are also provided for most shifts.
