The North Face Endurance Challenge would not take place without the help of our many hard-working and selfless volunteers. We sincerely appreciate the time, effort and sacrifice from the hundreds of people that help make The North Face Endurance Challenge a series of world-class events.

Captains are responsible for overseeing all aid station activities. They will be on radio and in frequent communication with the event staff. Previous trail race or aid station volunteer experience is required. Aid Station Captains will assist in the recruitment of aid station teams for their aid station.
