190 volunteers at Madrid WC

The organization of the 2005 ITU Madrid World Cup, which
  will be held next Sunday 5 June at Casa de Campo, would not be the same without
  the important work of the volunteers. This year, 190 volunteers chosen by the
  Madrid Triathlon Federation will be all the weekend of the event out and about
  the circuit ensuring another successful event. Most of them are prevolunteers
  of the candidate city of Madrid to host the 2012 Olympic Games. Sixty of them
  will be ITU Madrid World Cup volunteers for third year in a row.

  to the Madrid event page for full race details and start lists.

This year there will be a mentally disabled volunteers group   from the Madrid Down’s Syndrome Foundation. Their presence is a bid of   the Organizing Committee for sport as a social integration tool.

The Olympic triathlete Ana Burgos, born in Madrid, will be   the volunteers’ patroness for second year in a row. All the volunteers   will receive on-line information about their responsibilities for the World   Cup.

A group of volunteers called Ecovolunteers, created this year,   will be in charge of giving environmental information to the public along the   Casa de Campo circuit. These volunteers will receive specific environmental   knowledge from Madrid 2012.

Moreover, for third year in a row, there will be a group of   volunteers from the Madrid School of Languages for helping in translations (athletes,   ITU members…)

All the volunteers will be able to travel free in public transport   (Metro, buses and regional trains) next 4 and 5 June thanks to the agreement   reached between the Madrid Triathlon Federation and the Madrid Regional Transports   Consortium.

When the event is finished, the Organizing Committee will   give a present to all the volunteers: bags made of recycling cloth. These bags   are made by an association called Molinos de Viento integrated by people with   difficulties for working (www.ecolinea.org).
