About 1-2 weeks before the race you will be assigned a specific intersection in this zone. You may list a preferred intersection/location or other volunteers to work with and while we will do our best to accommodate those preferences, there are no guaranteed assignments. The main goal of course volunteers is to keep the runners safe by NOT allowing cars to interfere with the runners path. Most of the course will remain open to traffic going the opposite direction from the runners. Children are welcomed to help parents along the course but beware that some course positions will have significant traffic associated with them. Those 15 years or older may volunteer without parent supervision. All major intersections will have police assistance but some of the less major 'big' intersections may or may not have police assistance depending on the number of available officers.
This area covers the very end of the Downtown mall at the pavilion and the back neighborhoods of the course, which goes up 7th St, then on to Jefferson St, through Court Square and on to 2nd St, Northwood, Evergreen and Lexington Avenues and back to 7th St. towards the pavilion. You will need to be at your position from about 7:30-9:10 AM.
