“Supporting an event like the F1 Powerboat races takes an entire team and volunteers are key to that,” noted Cory Jobe, President/CEO of the Great Rivers & Routes Tourism Bureau. “We can’t wait for the fun and racing to start again on the Mississippi River.”

The Bureau worked with F1 Powerboat officials to bring the race to the Alton Riverfront.

Volunteer duties will include welcoming people and helping visitors navigate their way around the F1 Powerboat site. All volunteer roles will take place outside on the Alton Riverfront and will require standing for long periods of time.
