The Gold Nugget Triathlon would not be possible without our volunteers! Volunteers make a difference for each and every racer and are part of what make the GNT so special. Over 70% of the volunteers are racers. Family members and friends make great volunteers too.

Did you also know that you could win a guaranteed entry to the 2021 GNT just by volunteering this year? 10 lucky winners will be chosen from all volunteers who complete their shifts. Can you imagine not having to stress about registration? It’s a Win-Win!

** As noted in a March 22, 2020 update on COVID-19 impacts on the 2020 GNT, the event is being postponed until late summer 2020. We will communicate details as soon as we can and re-open volunteer sign-ups when the new date is known. The GNT Volunteer Coordinator has worked to reach out to those already signed up to volunteer. If you have any additional questions or concerns about volunteering please contact the Volunteer Coordinator.
