Are you interested in volunteering? The Apple Du is ran every year by about 100 volunteers. If it wasn’t for the awesome help from our volunteers the event wouldn’t be able to happen.

The Apple Duathlon is  managed by a local nonprofit called Active Central MN.   All of the events that ACM supports have a need for volunteers.  For over 10 years these great events have hired athletic teams, church groups, non-profits, and all sorts of charities to “volunteer” and raise money for their cause by helping at the events. Volunteer groups earn $25 per person per event. To date, we are proud to say that well over $250,000 has been donated to those various groups over the years!


There are various activities to volunteer for depending on the race, which include the following.

  • Registration & Check In
  • Set up and tear down
  • Handing out racers materials
  • Staffing designated points along the course for traffic control, safety, & direction.
  • Lifeguards
  • Boating/ water support at the triathlons

 With your help, you will aid in making this year’s events a great success! 

Attention Students: This is a great opportunity to fulfill your Service-Learning hours. Helping at these events can surely enrich your learning experience, teach civic responsibility, and strengthen our community. Our Race Coordinators will sign documents or e-mail instructors to make sure you get credit for your hours served.
