WHAT IS XRACE?

We are looking for backpackers to join our travelling XRACE event production crew. XRACE is a family adventure race where parent and child aged 6-14 race together, locating and completing 10 mystery challenges, racing the clock and other families. See our website or video to get a sense of the race.

HOW BACKPACKERS FIT IN:

Every race season, the XRACE event production team includes backpackers from around the world who are looking for a unique way to see New Zealand. We are now accepting applications to be a part of this crew. The XRACE crew will be travelling around New Zealand putting on races for local families from February 14 to March 26th.

We are looking for people who are outgoing, positive and willing to work hard. Most importantly we are looking for people who are able to do physical work and are easy going and flexible since you will be travelling and working with other travellers from around the world. We want this to be a fun experience for everyone involved. We work hard but see a lot of the beautiful country and have a blast doing it (drinking beers is one of our favourite things). WORK HARD/PLAY HARD.

HOW IT WORKS:

As a traveller, you want to see as much of New Zealand as possible in an affordable way.

XRACE wants young dynamic, energetic and flexible people to join the crew and travel around together putting on the races.

During the race season, the crew (of 8/10 people) travels and works together. XRACE will cover:

-all accommodation (we book for everyone, staying together in holiday homes and hostels)

-all travel costs (we drive in company vehicles) and

-race day food (you supply your own food for other days). Breakfast will be included all days we try and share the other food costs.

In exchange, you help us produce the races. This is primarily race-day work but also sometimes includes pre-race set up and preparation on the day prior to races. You will need to make sure that you are available and able to commit to the whole season (February 16 to March 25) with us.

APPLY TODAY!

If you are interested in this opportunity and to find out more send an email to contact@xrace.co.nz to express your interest and tell us a bit about yourself and any questions you have. The core crew here at XRACE all ourselves started as backpackers helping with races in New Zealand so we look forward to having you along on our team!

As far as typical job duties; race days can include a wide range of things. The mornings are spent planning and setting up the race course. 90 minutes before the race we will usually be helping out with registration and talking to competitors. There are ten challenges in the race that competitors must complete. These can range from physical challenges such as tug-of-war to a mental memory game to a dance challenge. You would be stationed at one of these challenges during the race and in charge of a couple other volunteers. After the race we pack up everything back on to the truck. The weekends are full on as that is when we produce most of our races. From Monday to Thursday, we travel together in several cars towards the next race location. Initiative to do fun stuff and going on adventures is encouraged. We would prefer persons with a driver’s license and are confident drivers.
