We Need Your Help - Volunteers Needed

Make this the best Start Stage ever and show off Modesto to the world!



Volunteers looking for an opportunity to participate in the 12th-annual, high-profile race can apply online for positions including, course marshal, ambassador and hospitality.
The 2017 Amgen Tour of California is scheduled for May 11-20, 2017.  International cycling teams will race through 700 miles of scenic landscape from northern to southern California in a ten-day road race modeled after the Tour de France.  The race will come to Modesto on Monday, May 15.
More than 4,000 volunteers in communities throughout the state participated in last year’s 11th-annual race, making it seamless and successful from start to finish and establishing it as the largest sporting event in the state of California.  In each of the host cities, as many as 350 local volunteers were recruited to help staff the race.

Volunteer positions for the 2017 Amgen Tour of California include:

  • Ambassadors
  • Anti-Doping Chaperones
  • Course Marshalls
  • Hospitality
  • Media Office
  • Parking Monitors
  • Volunteer Check-in
The majority of volunteers are needed to serve as course marshals, providing support for the 75 professional course marshals that travel with the tour and support the local law enforcement authorities in each city.  Course marshal volunteers have an opportunity to be on the race route, close to the cyclists, with responsibility for monitoring pedestrian traffic, barricades and street closures.
