Dear Ironman Medical Volunteer:

The online volunteer sign-up process for the 2020 Ironman World Championship Triathlon is now open. We hope to have you back for the 2020 race on October 10, 2020, in beautiful Kailua-Kona, Hawaii.

If you are planning to volunteer again this year, please fill out the online volunteer registration process. There are changes to the sign-up form so you will need to complete the on-line application, so we have all your current information.

Medical Licensed/Certified healthcare volunteers, Docs, Nurses, Paramedics, etc., for the medical tent, vans and pier assignments and Medical Logistics (escorts, computer entry, clean up, etc. - those that are not doing direct patient care) can sign up at:

NOTE: When signing up you are initially presented with one shift choice Oct 12th, 10:00am to 12:00am. Choose that shift - further down on the form you will then be given a 1st, 2nd and 3rd choice for shifts you are interested in. You will see a notice that you are not immediately assigned to a shift, final shift assignment based on your choices cannot be made until September.

You will receive a confirmation email from Ironman when you successfully sign up. I will send a follow up email confirming I have received your application to be part of the medical team, however it could be a few weeks from the time you sign up to getting the confirmation email since I only download and update the list a couple times a month until we get closer to race day.

Last year, the medical team had a full roster of volunteers by early July and we had to turn away volunteers so please sign up early and if your plans change and you can no longer volunteer after signing up, just let me know so I can accept additional applications to assure all our medical team spots are filled. 

If you are having difficulty signing up or don’t get a confirmation email from me a few weeks after signing up, let me know and I will try to get things figured out.

If you would also like to volunteer in other parts of Ironman, (registration, bike catcher, water station, etc.) the general volunteer sign up page is:

Hope to see you in October.

Bonus -Bonus, if you are around the Big Island in June or need an excuse to be, I’m looking for medical volunteers for the Ironman 70.3 Hawaii (Honu) held on May 30, 2020. This race is much lower key than Ironman with the busy time happening between noon and 3pm. The medical tent is located at the Fairmont Orchid. If you are interested please do a separate sign up using this link:


Please contact the Ironman Medical Tent Director- Paul Berlin

Neither the Ironman Sports Medicine Conference nor CMX Travel & Meetings manages the Medical Tent.
