Bike Course High Priority

September 9, 2018

Details

Volunteers on the bike course wear bright orange vests and direct participants to turn appropriately at certain intersections. Race organizers mark each turn with brightly colored signs and orange spray chalk on the road surfaces—but it also helps to have volunteers providing guidance and monitoring areas where bikers share the road with cars. Police will be located at any intersection that requires vehicular traffic to stop and yield to bikers. As such, volunteers will not manage vehicular traffic.

Location

Meet at Lake Lansing Park South under the main pavilion. There will be a volunteer check-in station where you will receive your free shirt, a snack bag, and further directions for your position. We will provide transportation to your spot on the course and back to the park at the end of your shift.

Run Course 1 High Priority

September 9, 2018

Details

Volunteers on the run course are present primarily for motivation. At this point in the race, athletes appreciate encouragement. The run course is simple, out and back, but we still need to monitor all trail splits to make sure runners don’t accidentally veer off course. Also, since the run course will remain open to the public, volunteers may gently direct runners/walkers who are not race participants to stay near the edge of the path to avoid racers.

Run Course 1 refers to the first leg of the race, the 1.4-mile run.

Transition Area

September 9, 2018

Details

The transition area is the fenced-in area containing all the bike racks. This area is the hub of action during a duathlon. Volunteers will be stationed at all entrances to the transition area, where they will assist participants and keep spectators out (both for safety and security). Racers must display their race number to gain access to the transition area.

Water Station

September 9, 2018

Details

We offer an aid station during the second run portion of the race. Runners will pass the aid station at the halfway or turnaround point. Volunteers fill and distribute cups of water. Volunteers will also be staggered along the course to pick up cups from runners during the race. This will save a lot of time when the race is over.
