Work Exchange Program

Welcome to the inaugural Across The Years Work Exchange program. We are excited to bring this program to this long standing multi-day running event. The goal of the program is to provide opportunities for enthusiastic participants to volunteer with us each day of the event in exchange for an entry into the 6 day event. We ideally would like to select individuals that are able to be with us for the entire six days. If you are interested, please read the job requirements and application info below. We will review all applications and make our selections based upon them. Thank you for your interest in Across The Years!

How it works:
Those accepted into the work exchange program will receive a complimentary entry into the ATY 6 day in exchange for working an 8 hour shift in the aid stations each day. When not on their shift, they are welcome to sleep, get in miles or just hang out. They will also receive a race shirt and be eligible for all race awards including belt buckles.

Limited slots:
We will have two open work exchange slots per shift and there are three 8 hours shifts per day.

Ideal candidates:
Ability to be on site for all six days and previous volunteering experience at an ultra marathon.

How to apply:
Interested applicants will need to fill out and submit an application to be reviewed by the race director to see if they are a good fit and dependable.
