Volunteer candidates are required to apply using an online application form. The applications open in early May and will remain open with the first round of selections taking place in September of the preceding year. Should interested candidates have missed the deadline all hope is not lost and a waiting list will be created.

How the application process works

Step 1: Candidates complete the online volunteer application form.

Step 2: Wait to hear from the organisers as to whether your application has been successful or if you have been added to the Volunteer waiting list. First round confirmation emails will be sent out to successful Volunteers during October of each year.

Step 3 Let the Volunteer Coordinator know whether you are accepting your entry to join the volunteer programme by responding to your confirmation email within 2 weeks of receiving your invitation.

Step 4: Pay your Volunteer programme joining fee within the period communicated in your volunteer acceptance email invite. Please note that your place on the programme is only guaranteed once payment is received.

Volunteer Fees (non-refundable):

First Time Volunteers: R 3800
Return Volunteers: R 1000

Volunteer Workshops

Successful Volunteer applicants, that are Cape Town based, will be required to attend the Volunteer Workshop which is hosted at the Absa Cape Epic office in January or February before the event.

During the workshop Volunteers will be introduced to all elements of the race, meet the organisers, and interact with fellow Volunteers whilst finding out what lies ahead of them in the upcoming months.

A final orientation session is held for all Volunteers on the morning of Rider Registration, at which the volunteers will get their first real interaction with the event.
