Volunteer Information, Duty Stations & Descriptions with Timetable

This is an updated message for all of our newest volunteers covering three key items:
Parking for Race Day Volunteers:
Please remember, if you arrive after 6am,
the facility parking lot will likely be closed to traffic and you will have to park
and walk from the school. Please plan to arrive before 6am to make sure we have everyone ready for an on time start

Volunteer Duties Assignments:
Here is a link to the document that has everyone assigned to a duty based on what you selected (I think everyone got what they requested).
Pre-Race Day Set-up(Sept 14th)
– Saturday: 10am-3:30pm for helping with set up and troubleshooting and participant packet pick-up.
– This document is for people who could only volunteer on the day before (if you are not on here, but find yourself willing to help out, just give us a shout or show up and we’ll find something for ya 🙂
Race Day Volunteers (Sept 15th)
– Sunday: the event starts at 7am, so we would need happy-smiling volunteers to arrive by 545-630am for “info-training” (…yummy hot coffee and possibly donuts).
We will be done by 1030am-11am. 

– This document is for people available to volunteer during the race (if you are not on here, but find yourself willing to help out, just give us a shout 🙂

Race-Day Duty Descriptions – this link should have a description of what you are doing.
Race-Day Duty Stations/Maps – this should help you find where you are being posted.
Athlete Guide – This is just an FYI for those of you who are not racing, this is the guide we sent out to athletes over the weekend with details about locations, times, course maps…

This is probably THE most important message for this year’s volunteers, so please do review everything here (we’re keeping it as short as possible) and give a shout out if you have any conflicts, comments or suggestions 🙂
Volunteer Recruitment: We’re short just a few more people for race day on the 15th…if everyone could copy/paste and post the following short message to your social media, it will help out a ton!
