We need teams and individuals to help us stuff bags, ensuring everything is ready on Friday, September 24th. Join us for a few hours, stuff some bags, and receive a shirt and some food on us.

Sweeper

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

At least 1 more volunteer needed.

Details

Help us follow along at the course-closing 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.

Your priority is to bike at the correct pace and to keep runners informed.

Police and medical bikers have other priorities not related to course closure times.
