STADIUM: Mascot Guide

May 23, 2020

Details

One of the many reasons our Kids Fun Run is so much fun is because we team up with a variety of local mascots to entertain our young participants. The mascots will lead our pre-race exercises to get all our kids ready to run! The Mascot Guide is an important role because you will be responsible for keeping those wild characters in line and on time. The mascots and Mascot Guide will meet in a 'dressing room' near the entrance. Then just before the Kids Fun Run begins, you will guide the mascots down onto the baseball field and into position. After the race is over, the mascots are encouraged to meet and mingle with guests for the remainder of the event.

The elevator will only be available to us if we can properly supervisor the zones. Please sign-up for this super easy yet hugely important role to help make our event a positive experience for all.

May 23, 2020

Details

We are looking for a few volunteers to help guide 5K and 10K participants back into the stadium as they near the end of their race.

Bring signs and noise machines to energize participants, while carefully ensuring they stay on track and enter the stadium safely.

Details

As participants finish their race, they will be quickly directed to the exit aisle located near third base. You will be positioned at this exit area, and stocked with bottles of water. Encourage participants to exit quickly, directing them up and onto the concourse. Congratulate them on the run and kindly provide a bottle of water, informing them that more water as well as fruit and snacks are up on the concourse. We cannot allow anyone to walk onto the grass of the baseball field, so it's important the exit keeps moving and flowing smoothly.

We need your help as a volunteer to assist the Canteen team by setting up the food & beverage tables, signage and encouraging guests to fuel-up with our free food. You will also be responsible for managing a donation kettle that will be located at this area. A staff member will collect the kettle at the end of the event and assist you with clean-up.
