VOLUNTEER WITH US

Wits&Grit is the obstacle course race that anyone can start and everyone can finish. We’ve reinvented the concept of a 5k run and created a revolution: MIND vs MUSCLE.

Wits&Grit would not be possible without our incredible volunteers! Whether you’re manning an obstacle or cheering on groups throughout the course – volunteers help make Wits&Grit an unforgettable experience.

*Volunteers can elect to receive either:

  • REDUCED Wits&Grit Team Signup 
  • FREE Passes to UNRAVELED Escape Room

THE CHOICE IS YOURS, SO VOLUNTEER TODAY!
