Volunteering at the GFNY Alpes Vaujany is a fun experience, with camaraderie, goodwill and excitement. Volunteers play a key role in creating an unforgettable experience for athletes, spectators, journalists and special guests from all over the world. The event draws on the help of over 120 volunteers over four days, August 26-29, 2021, in Vaujany. Volunteers who offer their time, energy, support and enthusiasm are a vital part of GFNY.
GFNY Alpes Vaujany: On August 26, 2021, a thousand cyclists from 30+ countries will ride on a challenging 119-km cycling marathon. On August 27-28, 2021 the GFNY expo takes place in Vaujany. More information about the event can be found at vaujany.gfny.com.
GFNY Athletes: The cyclists competing in the event are taking on a big challenge. 50% of participants are coming from abroad. All athletes are dedicated athletes who train hard to be able to complete a challenging event like GFNY. Help us welcome them to GFNY and get them all set to race.
GFNY Kids: On Saturday, May 15, Kids get to race too! Kids ages 2-13 will be taking on their own race in Fort Lee, NJ.
Everyone Can Help: You can volunteer in a broad range of roles, such as registration, setup, aid stations, clean up, motorcycle marshal and more. While there are many ways you can help, they all have one thing in common: you are part of the event. No matter if you’re young, old, love cycling or know nothing about it, if you’d like to help at the expo, an aid station or the finish line – we are looking forward to seeing you! Get involved in GFNY Alpes Vaujany to support the athletes in their quest to the GFNY Alpes Vaujany finish line.
Volunteer T-shirt: Every volunteer receives the official GFNY World Championship Volunteer T-shirt. The T-shirt identifies a person as an Official GFNY Volunteer. The T-shirt must be worn as the outer-most layer of your clothing - please pick the right T-shirt size!
