Aid Station Volunteer (Crew)

At least 92 more volunteers needed.

Details

If you want to interact directly with runners and have a real impact on their ability to succeed in the race, there's probably no better place for you then at one of our aid stations. If you're an experienced ultra runner who's been on the receiving end of a good aid station, then you know what it takes to do the job well - to anticipate runner's needs, help them solve problems, and get them back out on the trail. We need your expertise (and you might find real joy and fulfillment in giving back). Or if you're new to ultra running, this is a good place to get up-close and personal with it, while learning from other team members and the runners. It's not an easy job - the hours can be long and the weather can be challenging, but the gratitude of the runners and the camaraderie of your team will more than make up for it.

Loggie (Aid Station Logistics)

Minimum met, 3 volunteer spots remaining.

Details

If you have a strong back and/or a big truck (or van), and don't mind getting a little tired and dirty doing critical behind-the-scenes work, this is the job for you. We'll have you loading and unloading, sorting and stacking, issuing, and hauling aid station supplies, filling water jugs, helping to setup and take down aid stations, shuttling proofers and sweepers around, hauling dropped runners in from remote aid stations, and responding to whatever contingencies arise. If history holds, you'll put up to 200 miles on your vehicle, you'll work hard and long, and you'll sleep well afterwards, knowing that the race couldn't have happened without you. Owners of pickup trucks or very large SUVs preferred.

Location

The entire race course (and beyond!)

Dispatcher at Race Headquarters

At least 1 more volunteer needed.

Details

Bring order to the chaos... With 16 aid stations, 250 runners, and over 100 volunteers spread over 100+ miles, inevitably "things come up". One station needs more water, another needs food, another needs help with a canopy that won't go up right, and there are 3 runners who have dropped at 3 different stations, plus the proofers need rides, the sweepers need rides... it can get complicated! With travel times of over 30 mintues to some of the stations (and well over an hour edge-to-edge), it's critical that we build smart loads. If you have an organized mind that can make sense of all those calls for help that come in on the radio and translate them into coherent and efficient "missions" for the loggies who are making the trips - we need you!

Race Sweeper

Run a section of the race route behind the final race participant to make sure they make it to the next aid station, and give us hands-on assurance that the course is clear of runners behind you. If you are an experienced trail runner with the patient and supportive demeanor to keep that last person moving, and who can deal with any runner issues that arise on the trail between aid stations (including providing basic first aid, if needed), you're the right person for this job. You'll have a radio and an emergency kit, and we'll expect you to stay in visual contact with the last runner.

GUIDE TO TIME-SLOTS:
coming soon

Course Proofer

At least 8 more volunteers needed.

Details

Run a section of the race route on race morning ahead of the lead runners to ensure that markers are in place and the trail is clear. If you are a strong and experienced trail runner who can get out early, stay in front of the lead runners, and who is familiar enough with the course to recognize and fix any problems you encounter, you're ideal for this job. You'll carry marking ribbon and a map, and you'll be the final link in our course preparation process - insurance against last-minute course disasters.

Course Cleaner

At least 2 more volunteers needed.

Details

The race isn't really over until the last flag is pulled and the last accidentally-dropped top of a gel pack is picked up from the trail. This is a great opportunity to get out on the race course on Sunday while it's still marked, and see the beauty of the area without the pressure of racing. You'll be removing all the race markers and any debris (our runners are ultra-conscientious, but not perfect), making it look like it never happened. Available segments range in length from 5.9 to 14.2 miles (and if you want a longer run, you can sign up for multiple sections).

Trail Maintainer

At least 4 more volunteers needed.

Details

Pennsylvania winters, violent spring thunderstorms, the regenerative power of the forest itself - it's all hard on the trails, and we have a lot of trails to take care of. We start clearing things in the spring, but our most concentrated efforts are in the two weeks before the race - if you have a day or part of a day to spend in the woods then, we can sure use your help with pruning, sawing, general clean-up, and trail maintenance tasks. We have plenty of tools - just let us know when you're available. (It's a wonderful way to spend a day!)

Medical

Medical Support Staff

At least 10 more volunteers needed.

Details

If you're a certified medical professional - physician, physician assistant, nurse, paramedic, podiatrist, physical or occupational therapist, etc. - we need you! Ultra runners are generally a healthy bunch, but this is a tough race on difficult terrain, and things happen. Whether you work at an aid station or at race base, you'll assess medical situations, provide athletic medical support to help keep runners moving onward, and help them recover when they are done. And if there's an emergency, you'll be there to provide immediate support/triage, and communicate with EMS as needed.
