Job Description: This key role is not just about providing hydration support — but moral support and excitement! As runners travel the course, they may get fatigued; but with your smiling face and cheering attitude, you will revive them! Duties include setting up the station, filling and stacking cups with water and Gatorade, restocking cups throughout the course of the morning, handing beverages to runners as they come by, and finally cleaning up the area when the last runner passes.
Physical Requirements (ability, age, etc.):
Getting wet and standing for long periods is required for this role.
Check in at the volunteer table.
You will be escorted to your station.
All supplies-tub, table, trash can, and water jugs-will be dropped off.
Part of the group will fill cups with water while the rest of the group will be handing out drinks to the athletes.
Prefill as many cups as possible before runners reach you.
As athletes approach volunteers should be yelling out what they are handing out so athletes can take what they need. Do not get in the way of the runners; if they want water or food they will come to you. There will be other runners and cyclists on the course, please save food and drink for runners and walkers with bibs.
The sweeper will tell you when the last person has passed. Clean up the area (including picking up cups), take down, tables and pack up the tub of supplies. DO NOT dump out extra water, as we made need it for other aid stations. The truck will pick up the supplies. Bring any lost and found items to the finish line.
