This is the first stop for runners as they prepare to run our new Wolverine Canyon Run as they pick up their race packet and prepare for the race. Duties include organizing/handing out shirts, preparing goodie bags, assisting runners with finding their bib number, greeting participants with smiles and answering questions/providing race information. We will also need help preparing and serving dinners to our runners!
Duties include labeling and organizing runner’s belongings when they drop off, and retrieving them in a timely manner at the end of the race.
Great role for Groups! This key role is not just about providing hydration support — but moral support and excitement! As runners travel the course, they may get fatigued; but with your smiling face and cheering attitude, you will revive them! Duties include setting up the station, filling and stacking cups with water and Gatorade, restocking cups throughout the course of the morning, handing beverages to runners as they come by, and finally cleaning up the area when the last runner passes.
Directing runners and keeping them safe along the route are key. Duties include a proper understanding of the course, being able to stop pedestrian and/or traffic while runners cross. Standing for long periods of time is required.
Be the first to greet the runners when they finish their journey at Jensens Grove as they cross the finish line. We need your help in the following areas: Medals: Reward the runners by giving them their hard earned medal. Duties include unwrapping medals and organizing on tables Bottled Water distribution: Hand weary runners cold bottles of water. Duties include, opening cases and stocking pools Food Distribution: Make sure there are plenty of bananas, bagels, apples, etc. at easy reach for the runners. Duties include restocking tables. Crowd Control: The runners are happy to be done. Some are waiting for their friends/family to cross. But we need to make sure everyone can get through so we don’t have a back-up of runners waiting to cross the finish line. Duties include keeping runners moving efficiently through the chute, directing runners to the post-race area where they can wait for loved ones, get their Finishers picture taken, and retrieve their belongings from gear check.
When it is all said and done, and we have to say good-bye to our great event until next year, we need volunteers to help tear down the start/finish line area.
