Water Stop

September 10, 2016

This volunteer task is full.

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.

Provide on-site race cheering! You will be assigned an intersection along the race course. As runners approach you during the race you direct them so they stay on course, you will interact with drivers as the road is open for traffic, and we want you to cheer and encourage runners as they pass by.

This is a great way to serve the runners as you help collect timing chips from runners as they finish and verify that chips have been returned as runners leave finish area (i.e. no timing chips left on shoes). After the last runner has arrived then you will assist with Finish Line tear down and help with movement of equipment from the finish line (i.e. timing mats, loading,etc.) to the various vehicles.
