We always need volunteers, especially on packet pick up day and race day!
What’s involved? You have to learn some basics about the race such as start time, location, pricing, courses, etc. Your job is to check people in and give them their packets including their race numbers, giveaways, shirts, etc (varies by race) and wish them a great day! On race day, this is an especially good position for morning people – we need awake and cheerful greeters.
The success of every race comes down to the volunteers on the road. Being a course monitor is not difficult, but it is mission critical. Your job is to 1) Direct runners/walkers on turns so they stay on course, 2) Cheer them on and 3) act as our eyes and ears in case someone is not able to finish the course and needs to be picked up.
You will be on the course, handing out water to the athletes and cheering them on! You are also our eyes and ears on the course!
