Thank you for taking the time to read through this pack. Volunteers are a major component of obstacle racing, and without them Blackhawk events could not go ahead. Over the years we’ve met amazing people willing to donate their time motivating others to dig deep and finish the course. But it’s not just motivating participants through the mud and over obstacles, volunteers assist with all major operations of the event making sure it trundles along like clockwork.
There are numerous roles available with a variety of tasks needing help long before the event even starts. For example our RnD team are busy creating new obstacle concepts, the marketing and strike teams are out there spreading the word and the build team is busy working on the course creating those killer obstacles two weeks before the event.
So if you see yourself part of the Blackhawk team we’d love to hear from you. Apart from the satisfaction of helping fellow Obstacle nuts around the course you become part of the family that is Operation Blackhawk. Working with Soldier Dan and the team you not only receive a great selection of perks, you’re also witnessing first hand true military professionalism by working with us behind the scenes creating one of the leading obstacle course events in the country.
