Become a Giro di Burnaby Volunteer

Every year, the Giro di Burnaby depends heavily on our dedicated team of 250+ volunteers to make this world class cycling event come to life in the Heights Neighbourhood. Our window of time to set up the course, hang sponsor banners and supervise barricades for road closures is a monumental task and we can’t do it without your help. As a member of the ‘Giro Hero’ team, you will receive:

  • An exclusive & specialized volunteer t-shirt;
  • Food & snacks from Bosa Foods to keep you fueled on race day;
  • An invite to our annual mandatory volunteer dinner/information session with an opportunity to win some amazing door prizes;
  • The opportunity to get directly involved in one of North America’s most exciting professional cycle race events.

Race day is Thursday, July 13th, 2017 – so mark your calendars, and click the image/link below to fill out the volunteer application from on Better Impact!
