Thought I’d give volunteering at Spartan a try having taken part in that Spartan Sprint in the Olympic park last year.
Okay it was a bit of a long day from arriving at 6am to escaping at 8pm ish, but they did provide a decent lunch and a briefing that actually left me know what I needed to know.
I didn’t give out that many burpies, but being a climbing traverse type obstacle there were quite a few who did get the burpies! I know I did all mine when I failed the very same damn wall.
I did recommend anyone who found it hard go bouldering for extra practice and was amused when a lady came flying through and said it was because she did bouldering.
For being there all day I got a reasonable amount of swag. My volunteer / Spartan Support t-shirt, a decent lunch, a water bottle and a Spartan volunteer hoody.
I’ll certainly volunteer at Spartan again, but so many weekends already booked up this year! So if there is a clash free not too far away one I shall go!
