am. Some volunteers may work other duties as the race begins.
Race Packet Pickup
Adult volunteers will check in
participants and hand out t-shirts, timing chips and numbers.
Packet pickup is the day before the race, 8:00 am to 6:00 pm, at the Ice
Arena, as well as on race day beginning at 5:45 am. Some of the check-in helpers can also
work other stations once all entrants have received their materials.
Volunteers will dispense water into cups
and hand cups to the runners as they pass and pick up empty cups. Once all
the runners have passed the water stop, it needs to be cleaned up and
volunteers may head to the finish to help or help tear down the course.
Adult volunteers are stationed at
strategic locations to guide and monitor runners through course.
Volunteers assist runners as they finish,
collecting timing chips and directing them to food line, rest rooms or
Volunteers keep food line stocked for the
5K and Half-Marathon finishers.
Volunteers will help take down and clean
up the finish area, food lines and course.
Volunteers are needed to cheer on the
runners and show support for this event!! We need lots of spectators
along the course route, so find a spot near your home, school or work and
cheer on the runners!!!
