Do you love to volunteer? We’d love to have you!
This is a large event which brings in over 5,000 people. Our biggest challenge is finding enough dedicated and enthusiastic volunteers for the run to “run” smoothly. Volunteers come in bright and early, usually by 6:30-7:00 am and are finished before 11 am. Here are some of the areas where we need help.
Set Up: The day of the run volunteers are needed to set up tables and chairs, signs, water stations, trash cans, etc.
Complimentary Food & Drink: Volunteers are needed to set up and oversee the complimentary food & drink. Food needs to be set out and continuously refilled. Other volunteers will help with traffic flow and clean up.
People Movers: We have thousands of people we need to get from one point to another. Volunteers are needed to assist people in getting to the designated areas. Provide directions to the registration tables, pre-registration, bathrooms, opening ceremonies, etc. When people have finished with their business inside the concourse they need to be directed back outside. When outside continue to provide directions and assist people to get to their location. After the race, please assist people to the brunch line and back outside again.
Start/Finish lines: Volunteers will be needed at the start and finish of the run to help with coordination and timing. At the start, volunteers need to encourage faster runners to move up and make sure walkers are in the back. There are two finish lines—one on the bridge for the walkers and one at Campbell’s Field for the 10K. Volunteers will hand out certificates and water to the walkers and give them directions back to the Field. For the runners, volunteers will hand out water and finisher medals.
Course Monitors/Cheerleaders: Course Marshals will be assigned positions throughout the run to clearly identify the course to runners/walkers. Please cheer runners and walkers as they pass by. We want to inspire each person to do his or her best and feel supported and appreciated.
Clean Up: Volunteers are needed to clean up after the event with such things as putting away tables and chairs, cleaning up trash, removing signs, etc.
