Job Description

MEC stores are more than bricks and mortar. And they're more than places to buy hats and backpacks. They're hubs for the outdoor community. People step through our doors to connect, learn, find gear and get inspired.

As Event Support Staff – Run Crew Leader, you’ll provide exceptional member service. You’ll assist in the execution of MEC races, rides and other events.  You will also set up and lead the Run Crew on a weekly basis.

You’ll work with an inclusive, hands-on, collaborative group that connects people with quality products to encourage active outdoor lives. You’ll always be learning, and there’s a good chance your co-workers will inspire you to try something new, like riding in a Fondo, bouldering or paddleboarding.

What you do:

  • Set up the race or ride course for the MEC sponsored event
  • Set up the start and finish areas
  • Help with on-site registration
  • Distribute food and drinks to the participants
  • Assist riders or runners at the water stations
  • Operate the timekeeping equipment
  • Clean up the race or ride course and the main event site
  • Build and lead the Run Crew

What you bring:

  • A passion for running and sharing the stoke
  • You’re keen to wake up early and work long days outside, rain or shine.
  • A good natured, welcoming vibe. You’re outgoing and genuinely like helping people.
  • Enthusiasm to cheer on participants and help them push themselves.
  • You are a natural leader
  • You have a valid driver’s licence
  • Flexibility to work a variety of shifts, especially on weekends.

Bonus points if you…

  • Have first-aid experience
  • Are conscious of protecting the environment and dividing wastes
  • Have experience setting up or participating in races
  • Cycling experience

We've described the essentials of what it takes to make things happen in this role. MEC believes in equal opportunity in employment practices without discrimination. We strive to make our employee workforce inclusive and reflective of the communities we serve. We endeavour to make it possible for people with disabilities to succeed here too, so if you have a disability, let us know what extra support you need, and we'll make reasonable accommodations.
