Night Attack volunteers can be the first face thousands of participants see. Whatever you do as a True Grit volunteer you are the backbone of making the event run smoothly for all our Gritters.



- Registration to provide the first welcome to the thousands of Night Attack participants.
- Bag drop is a key part of the participant experience, and typically the last stop before Gritters make their way to the start line.
- Finish line to help organise finishers t-shirts and drinks for participants.
- Obstacle marshals are people who help to encourage and motivate our participants and teach them technique as they embark on a 10+km challenge, with 30+ obstacles.

Night Attack volunteers, need to show some grit at times just like our participants. Volunteer shifts kick off at approximately 4:00pm in the afternoon. We need people who are up for the challenge and who are prepared to work with others.


- To say THANK YOU we allow Volunteers to RUN the course for FREE!
- Front-row seats to the best action in the house.
- Lunch, water and a Sports Drink.
- Free access to the event and free parking.
