Sweeper Medium Priority

Help us follow along at the 15-min per mile pace. We need two sweepers for each event. You will ride along behind the runners. As you pass runners you will politely ask them to move to the sidewalks and inform them that they are now past the "supported race" pace. We can not support runners who move past a 15-min per mile pace. Your priority is to bike at the correct pace to keep runners informed.
Police are there for road closures, not for runner support.
We've additional bikers there for medical support; again, their focus is medical treatment, not course closure.
