Where can I find the results?

Can internationals also volunteer?

Yes, internationals can also participate as a volunteer but they have fewer functions on the race
day. This is due to potential communication issues with coordinators.

Can I sign up with a friend as volunteers?

Yes, there is a remark section at the end of the form. You can indicate at the remark section who
you want to work together with. We will take this into account when the schedules are being
made!

Do I get volunteer training before the day I am going to volunteer?

This depends on the function. Most functions do not need any kind of training in advance. If you
do need some kind of training, you will be informed well in advance. Everybody will get an email
with clear instructions on what could be expected from you as a volunteer.

Can I still volunteer if I already participate as a runner in the Veluweloop?

Yes! Your help is needed before and after the race day, but unfortunately you won’t be able to
help on the race day itself. If you already participate as a runner you can make a remark in the
form!

file, so that it is visible on your cycling computer. Then you can navigate with that. More information on this page.
