Far West Masters Racing

The Far West Masters is an organization of volunteers. Our race calendar and race operations depend on the efforts of many people who contribute time and energy to putting together a schedule of challenging and enjoyable races each season.

This page lists the Far West members who contribute to our program by volunteering to staff race positions at our events.

Race Volunteers

When you arrive at the area for a Far West Masters race, the race checkin desk is staffed by fellow racers who have volunteered their time. Our volunteers will help make sure you have everything you need for your race day and answer any questions you might have about the event schedule and masters racing.

On the hill during the race, the officials are also fellow Far West racers who have volunteered their time to help ensure that our competitions are safe and fair. At each race, we provide a Technical Delegate (TD) and a Referee who together with the Chief of Course from the organizing area comprise the race jury. Mark Mirviss is the Head of Officials and works diligently each year to ensure that we have licensed officials who are qualified to work our races.
