Work the pre-registration tables, greet runners and distribute pre-registration packets and shirts.
Volunteers who like to setup things up will be responsible for helping setup for Race for Hope after unload items from the trailers and/or trucks. Volunteers should expect light to moderate lifting.
Another bonding opportunity! Volunteers who like to setup things apart (okay, down) will be responsible for helping to-up, take equipment down, load it to trailers and trucks and help 'leave the park as pristine as when we arrived". Volunteers should expect light to moderate lifting.
Are you one of those infectiously friendly people? We need you to take care of our great volunteers! Hospitality volunteers should be comfortable assisting and providing direction to other event volunteers on race day. They will help feed our volunteers and pass out shirts and other tokens of thanks. We'll also need you to be ready to answer questions concerning race events.
So what DO runners do with their keys, cell phones and sunglasses? Leave them with Gear Check, of course! Volunteers needed to receive athletes' personal gear, bag it, mark it, and store it at race start-up and release it back the finish.
Ever want to be a Marshal? These folks are positioned at specific areas and intersections on the race route. Your job is to ensure that runners remain safely on the designated route, direct the runners on the course where changes of direction occur and hold back traffic. You are the eyes and ears of the Race Director in case a runner needs help. Course Marshals will receive instructions and assignments before race start and will be dismissed once the race has finished.
Volunteers will set up water stops before the race and staff water stations along the course. You'll hand out water to runners and pick up empty cups and clean up post-race. Enthusiasm a must!
Do you like to see runners cross the finish line? This job is for you! Volunteers will direct athletes through the finish chute, encourage them to keep moving and control the chute area. You'll have to (kindly) direct spectators to stay clear of the clock and not crowd the finish line so runners can freely pass through. The best part: distribute water to the runners and direct finishers and spectators to refreshments and post-race activities. Fun, huh?
Medical Volunteers will provide non-technical support (water, ice, towels) and any other assistance deemed necessary by our contracted Medical Team on site. Certified MD's, RN's/LPN's, EMT's, CMT's are encouraged to register. We love our nurses, medics, techs and docs!
