Amgen Tour of CA - Paso Robles
Paso Robles Stage 5 SPONSORS

Thank You 2011 Volunteers!

More than 4,000 volunteers in communities throughout the State participated in last year’s race, making it seamless from start to finish.

The majority of volunteers are needed to serve as course marshals, providing support for the 80 traveling professional course marshals and local law enforcement authorities. Course marshal volunteers have an opportunity to be on the race route, close to the cyclists, with responsibility for monitoring pedestrian traffic, barricades and street closures. Volunteers also serve important positions with the media, in security and hospitality.

Volunteers are the backbone of the Amgen Tour of California. Whether you enjoy interacting with athletes or mingling with the media, the tour offers opportunities to pursue your passion and make a difference in others’ lives. Please accept our invitation to volunteer for this exceptional event. We would love to have you and your organization represented. If you have questions about volunteering for the Amgen Tour of California, or to be placed on a waiting list, please contact Rose O’Sullivan, Volunteer Director, at 805.237.4741. Group presentations can also be arranged.
