Manage barricades along race course

You must be 10 or older to volunteer for this task.

August 26, 2017

Details

This is our #1 race day need! We have to keep the course safe for the runners. We do that by putting barricades out at intersections and staffing those with volunteers. Please note that we are once again asking volunteers to place their barricades as we don't have the manpower to set them all up in the allotted pre-race time. It is a 2 person job to set them up!
