Course Sweeper

No volunteer spots remaining.

This volunteer task is full.

Details

This volunteer follows the last participant along the course - but not too closely! It seems that doing this role by bicycle would be best to allow going along the course easily perhaps multiple times. This role is also "eyes and ears" along the course to notice any problems or needs along the way (more water at aid station; dog loose, etc.) and to then notify the race directors immediately of the situation.

The primary task is to monitor the portion of the course that is closed to vehicles and to let volunteers at all three road closure locations when the last participant is out of that section. Once you're positive that all participants have cleared that section, then notify the road closure locations to move signage and barricades aside to allow free flow of all vehicle traffic.

This role is needed on-site by 8:00 am to allow this person to ride their bicycle along the full course prior to the event starting time to familiarize them with the course and road closures that begin at 8:45 am.

This role continues until the last participant has finished the 5K course completely - 11:00 am-ish.
