We Want You


This marvelous community of messengers would not exist without your hard work, your sweat, and your blood. Thank you.

Now, we come together in Guatemala for the 18th Annual Cycle Messenger World Championships.

This CMWC has been made possible by nearly a dozen volunteers working together from four continents. It will continue to be run by volunteers on the ground in Guatemala. Here, we need your help.

Please give a portion of your time in Guatemala to help support the CMWC.

There are a number of volunteer positions available, and we are counting on you to make the Worlds a success! Whether it be working checkpoints, crowd control, special events, you name it--there is a way for you to lend a hand.

Will you please volunteer while you're here? We are happy to work with you to put your skills to good use!

In order to volunteer, please:

1. Make sure you're registered! If you're not racing, register as a guest so you are accounted for and receive all the goodies racers get--including access to parties.

2. Let us know you want to volunteer. Check the volunteer box on the registration form and e-mail us via the contact form on the webpage.

3. Please check in with a volunteer coordinator when you arrive, and be sure to check the CMWC headquarters regularly for volunteer notices and information.

Whether or not you volunteer, we have so much to be thankful for--please be sure to express the gratitude you feel.

Thank you for your commitment to the messenger community, CMWC, and for your free spirit--Soar!
