Water Stop November 23rd from 4:30-7:30pm High Priority

At least 8 more volunteers needed.

Details

Be on the other side of the cup! This position has you arriving about and hour and a half or so before the race to work as a team with fellow water stop volunteers to move & set-up tables with cups half-filled with water. Once the runners have come through the water stop, volunteers are responsible for raking up the dispensed cups, gathering the trash and breaking down the tables. Your other role is also providing smiles, clapping, cheers and more while assisting runners by pouring water into their bottles. Crowd support is sometimes more valuable than the fluid you give out.

Note need to arrive early or on time to check in and then go to the water stop out on the course.
