Volunteers

What is this program about?

We believe that assistance to the runner is fundamental to the success of the project. We believe that safety is the most important thing. The program consists of providing the full assistance of the corridor in the areas of logistics, accompaniment, security and medical assistance through the action of volunteers. This program will thus contribute to the creation of networks among runners, companions and the community in general, lovers of this type of sports.

Whether you area student, still active or retired, a sporty person or a novice, we need all types of profiles for this event. Your skills will be useful to us, your presence an asset, your support simply essential.

Você conhece a percurso da carreira? Isso é muito melhor! Se você já foi um corredor de aventura, você conhece o Ybyturuzú ou competiu em uma edição anterior do Ultra-Trail® Guaraní, seu conhecimento no campo será de grande ajuda.

We are also looking for volunteers for medical teams and rescue workers:

  • Nurses: (anesthetists, CPR or cardiopulmonary resuscitation, emergencies, etc.) can join our medical team of volunteer nurses.
  • Doctors: If you are a general practitioner, sports doctor, emergency doctor, anesthetist or mountain rescue doctor, interested in a beautiful geography such as the Ybyturuzú mountain range and wish to live the adventure in a unique setting and environment, please do not hesitate to contact us.
  • Physiotherapists and podiatrists: Often runners suffer from their own pains to the demands of this type of event, so we need to count on you.
  • Rescuers: Attending sick or troubled runners during the course of the competition is one of the most important missions. If you have a first aid degree and excellent physical condition, your help will be very valuable to us.

If you have any questions, do not hesitate to write to info@ultratrailguarani.com or through our contact form.
