If you’re looking for the ultimate way to experience Canadian Rally Sport, there’s no better way than to volunteer as a worker! No experience is necessary as we will teach you everything that you need to know. Workers often get the best seats in the house to watch the rally, so what are you waiting for?
We are looking for volunteers for the upcoming Rocky Mountain Rally being held on May 26/27 around Invermere BC and we could use your help! We are needing to to fill almost 90 marshal and radio positions.

When volunteering at a rally, you may find yourself in the forest, standing still for long periods of time, alone at times or grouped with others, or perhaps within town near amenities. Generally you will know your position ahead of time, but in rally, schedules do sometimes change and as a result positions can be juggled. Where ever you find yourself located, it’s crucial to be prepared. Not only will it make your job easier, but will also make the event more enjoyable.
We’ve asked some seasoned vets what they bring and they have come up with the items below.
√ Clothing for all weather conditions; warm, cool and wet. Including outer shells. We have seen sunshine, rain and snow all in the same weekend. Snowpants & Winter jackets were needed last year
√ Good shoes (good outdoor hiking shoe/boot recommended)
√ Sunscreen & hat for those sunny days
√ Bug spray
√ Cell phone
√ Food/snacks (bag lunch may be provided in addition)
√ Any medications you require
√ Toilet paper
√ Notepad and pen
√ GPS or map
√ Event volunteer package!
Other Items to Consider
√ Lawnchair (may have down time)
√ Shelter/EZ Up Tent
√ Backpack with camelpack
Are you driving to & from or during the event? Be prepared for bad weather during your travels, including snow and ice. Ensure your tires are in good condition and carry a full size spare if you can. A first aid or emergency kit is also recommended. If you are attending a winter rally, bring blankets, shovel and tow rope as well.
It’s always better to have something and not use it instead of not having it and needing it. With a little preparation, you’ll be sure to enjoy your time outdoors!
