Volunteer Appreciation Program


It takes thousands of volunteers to bring IRONMAN athletes across the finish line every year.

The Volunteer Appreciation Program is a way for IRONMAN and IRONMAN 70.3 athletes to say THANK YOU to a volunteer who makes a positive and lasting impact on their race experience.

Athletes receive a red IRONMAN Foundation wristband at Athlete Check-In and are instructed to provide the wristband to a volunteer who exemplifies our mantra of “Service Through Sport, Commitment to Community.”

  • Whether it’s a volunteer who answers questions during check-in, helps you check your gear, or a volunteer who greets you at the finish line with your medal and a huge congratulatory smile, the wristband is a simple way to say thanks!
  • Volunteers are encouraged to collect as many wristbands as possible and share their wristband photos with their Volunteer Director, as well as on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram using #IMFVolunteer.

Who can join?

Both athletes and volunteers are encouraged to partake in the Volunteer Appreciation program.

At what races are the wristbands available?

Wristbands are provided at all IRONMAN and IRONMAN 70.3 events in North America and at select events in EMEA.
