Race Day Registration Table

You must be 16 or older to volunteer for this task.

April 28, 2018

Details

Race Day registration is separate from pre-stuffed packets. We typically get about 50 race day registrations. Duties will include assisting runners with registration forms, assigning and documenting bibs, shirt distribution and collecting payment. Volunteers will need to arrive no later than 4:00. Registration opens at 4pm. Some setup will be required. Organization and communication skills are key. You will also want to familiarize yourself with the course, as you can anticipate questions about the course and events. This booth works best with 2 people assisting with registration and payment, and 1 or 2 people assisting with shirt selection.


This is a good opportunity if you want to both volunteer and run. If you are able to volunteer in multiple areas, another great option would be awards or hospitality since your duties ends with registration at race start.
