Water Stop

Minimum met, 5 volunteer spots remaining.

Details

Be on the other side of the cup! This position has you arriving 60 minutes 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 put into their water bottles.
