Details

Directing runners/walkers and keeping them safe along the route are key. Cheering on participants and having fun aren't requirements, but they sure appreciate it!

Duties include understanding the course route and stopping pedestrian and/or vehicle traffic while participants cross your intersection.

Location

Please arrive no later than 8:15 a.m. to the Memorial Stadium lot, check in to receive your specific location, and then head to your designated spot. We will provide you with a map.

Your mission will be complete when the last walker passes your area (they will be wearing a road safety vest). After that person passes, you may leave for the day.

There is no requirement to return to the stadium lot at the end of your shift, however, you are welcome to come enjoy post-race refreshments if you'd like.

You will help make sure participants know where to park (Spencer Museum lot) and how to get from the parking lot to the Memorial Stadium lot.

You'll also be the first people participants will see in the morning, so energy and positivity are welcome!

Location

Meet at the Memorial Stadium lot no later than 7 a.m., check in, then proceed to your assigned location. Once the race has started and all 5K participants have passed your area (the last participant will be wearing an orange vest), you may leave for the day or walk over to the Memorial Stadium lot to enjoy post-race refreshments if you'd like.
