There are over 500 volunteers who work for the foundation around the country. Fifty of them are busy all year organising the event; the other volunteers are called upon mainly during the event.
The Roparun organisation is built up of a number of divisions. Each division is managed by a board member, a project leader and project coordinators. The divisions are:
|Starting locations||Setup and disassembly, catering, security and coordination at the starting area in Paris, Bremen or Almelo.|
|Support locations||Setup and disassembly, catering and coordination at the support locations in France or Germany.|
|Rotterdam finish location||Setup and disassembly, catering, bicycle parking, security and coordination at the finish area in Rotterdam.|
|Route||Entire route, checkpoints, traffic team, emergency team, motor team and the General Coordination Team.|
|Logistics||Transportation of goods and vehicles.|
|Communications||Website, radio, photo and video, press briefing and the promotional team.|
Being involved in the Roparun as a volunteer means fun, new experiences and social contacts.
