City Park, Appleton

Welcome back volunteers to the 2023 Sole Burner 5K Walk/Run. We are so excited to have you here to help on another successful event!

We couldn’t do it without the dedication and support from volunteers like yourself. It’s the gift of your time and effort
that makes large community events like the Sole Burner possible.


Please click on the Signup Genius link below to sign up for a volunteer role:



While many of you are returning volunteers, some of you may be new to our event. Below you’ll find much of the
information you’ll need to help us out!

If you’re a returning volunteer and are comfortable with what you need to do, please feel free to head to your station
and jump right in. Otherwise…

Attached you’ll find a map of the City Park. The Volunteer/Information will be on the southwest side of the park, just off
the path on the corner of Franklin and Drew St. Please check in there with Tim or Devin and they will get you set. So
you know what Tim looks like, his picture is attached below. 

For times and a brief description of your station, please refer to our Signup Genius webpage or the information you
were given. If a report time is not listed, please show up at the volunteer tent 10 min earlier than the posted start time to check in and allow time to get to your station. We will provide you with further details when you check in.

Key information:
o Parking: You may also park on any of the surrounding side streets, mainly to the west of the City Park. DO
NOT park on Union, Park, Drew, Franklin, North, or Harris streets. If you are working an intersection, you may
park by your intersection after checking in. Just make sure you don’t park on the race route! :)
o Dress Code: There is no dress code for volunteers, so please where something comfortable and weather
appropriate. We will be giving you a nice orange vest to signify you as a volunteer for the event.
o Check in: Unless another time is noted on signup genius, please check in at the volunteer tent 10 min prior to
your station start time.
o Activity: The event tends to have high and low periods of activity. While you may be bored for a bit and feel like
you are standing around, it will get really busy.
o Area coordinators will be wearing a yellow vest. If you have questions, check in with them.
o When you have completed the station you’ve signed up for, please check back in at the volunteer tent before
you leave. If your game, we’ll have other tasks.
