See below for pictures!!

Adult volunteers will set up the check-in area, race course, and finish area. This will begin at 6:00 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.
Water Stops
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.
Course Marshals
Adult volunteers are stationed at strategic locations to guide and monitor runners through course.
Finish Line
Volunteers assist runners as they finish, collecting timing chips and directing them to food line, rest rooms or medical attention.
Food Line
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!!!
