  1. Mail received:

I am contacting you in connection with an event called Muddy Princess. Muddy Princess is a brand new Fun Obstacle Mud Run for women – and women only! Having fun and team spirit is in the foreground of this unique event. After great success for our first two events in Cape Town and Johannesburg, we will be bringing Muddy Princess to Giba Gorge in Pinetown Durban on the 14 of August.

Because we would love for as many as ladies to participate and experience this amazing event we would like to offer younger females the chance to participate as well without spending a cent.

We are currently looking for girls over the age of 16 who are keen, reliable and trustworthy to volunteer at our event.

All volunteers will receive the following:

1 – An exclusive volunteer t-shirt

2 – A FREE RUN into that day’s event

3 – Be a part of an exciting mud fun run alongside fun, energetic and inspiring people.

(If there are guys interested, they can volunteer, but because it is a women’s run they will need to give their free tickets to their mothers, sisters… etc.)

What do volunteers do?

Volunteers will help with various tasks, such as checking in participants, handing out water on the course, cheering on participants, and much more!

Can I volunteer and run for FREE on the same day?

Yes, you can! Volunteers who help out in the morning shift can run the course for free after completing their shift and those who help out in the afternoon shift can run the course for free before their shift.

The venue: Giba Gorge MTB Park

Date: Sunday 14th August 2016

Shifts to choose from:

06:00am- 12:30pm or 11:00am- 17:30pm

Volunteers will need attend one of the following briefing sessions:

12th of August at 3pm or 13th of August at 11am

We hope you will find interest in being a part of this amazing event and we hope to hear from you soon.

Take a look at our previous events:

 

Kindest Regards
