Welcome to the 2017 volunteer work program!

We appreciate your willingness to participate in the most important adventure race in Latin America.

Along with its 100 km overall course, its campsites which will be immersed among lakes and mountains, with almost 3000 participants from 35 different countries and volunteers coming from 10 different countries, EL CRUCE makes a difference!

Becoming a volunteer in this program means joining the biggest company and one that requires an impressive logistics infrastructure. EL CRUCE will boost your willingness to help others and your engagement with highly qualified staff members and other volunteer team members. Your true reward will be the chance to live one of the best experiences in your life.
