Medal Handout Medium Priority

Runners finishing the 10k and half marathon receive a medal for their accomplishment, be the smiling face congratulating them and adorn them with their medal. Arrive at the finish line area ahead of time, help us organize the medals, get them onto the field, and be ready to call out and congratulate runners as they meet you at the field exits.

You're a part of the experience the remember from race day, receiving their medal, help us make it special. We have four exits to cover.

Runner/Walker Separation Medium Priority

You must be 18 or older to volunteer for this task.

At least 20 more volunteers needed.

Details

Help us help the runners have a great race! We need to help direct runners and walkers to separate. Over the final stretch of the event, you will be staged in the center of the course to help direct runners to the left and walkers to the right. This separation helps runners, moving faster, not have to navigate the slower-moving walkers.

Please arrive at your location early, make sure you have your signage, dress appropriately, bring a drink to stay hydrated, and park off of the course in accordance with street signs.

Last mile of course

Sweeper Medium Priority

June 6, 2020

Details

Help us follow along at the 20 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 20 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 have additional bikers there for medical support; again, their focus is medical treatment, not course closure.
