Judges Team

This is exactly what is sounds like! Judging the athletes as they complete the workouts. Ideally you will have had some experience competing or judging before, but we give full training before the event. You are given access to our Judges whatsapp group where our Head Judges Tom Staniland & Rob Lowe will be on hand to guide you through the workouts and how to recognise the no-reps. 

On the competition day, each workout will be explained to you again and if you have any questions the Head Judges will be there to help and support you. 

It's great fun judging as you are right in the middle of all the action - some think it's better than competing!

Please email volunteers@therainhilltrials.co.uk to get involved

Equipment Crew

The equipment crew is responsible for making sure the right kit, is in the right place at the right time! We have very experienced Head of Equipment leaders who are super organised and easy to work with. They will guide you on the day and help if you have any questions. 

This job does involve moving barbells, kettle bells etc so is ideally suited for people who are not injured (too much!)

Please email volunteers@therainhilltrials.co.uk to get involved

Our events are run on a random ballot entry system. If you want to guarantee yourself a spot to compete you can bypass the ballot AND get a discounted entry by volunteering to be part of our judging or equipment teams at a different event. Click on the button below to find out more details
