This role is for a bike rider (yes there are a couple of big hills!) to do two things. The first is to lead out the fastest runners on the course ensuring that they make all turns, etc. So to start, you'll ride the entire route leading the fastest runners. The second role comes a bit later when you'll go back out on course to find the slowest participants. Once you know that our last participant has passed an aid station, you can instruct those volunteers that their aid station role has completed once they clean up the area. Ideally you'll be in occasional contact with the race director by mobile phone to let her/him know where you're at on the course.
