Vital Job!!!! A Course Marshall is responsible for making sure our participants are staying on the course. Lots of cheering, smiles, encouragement and pointing where runners need to turn :)
You are responsible for making sure no man, woman or child gets left behind! Qualifications include walking at a leisurely pace and enjoying the scenery. But in all seriousness, you should have a cell phone with you "just in case"
You are responsible for passing out shirts to participants, smiling, and occasional funny banter.
Passing out the fun swag bags that are filled with local business coupons and other fun items. Try not to get too excited with this fun job!
Responsible for handing out racing bibs. This gets chaotic for a hot minute before the race so someone who has race experience is usually best suited for this job.
You get to offer ice-cold refreshments to our participants on the course during the race. A pleasant smile and cheering-on-type attitude is super helpful here. Also, feel free to pump out some family-friendly tunes to keep our participant's spirits up :)
You provide the hydration and encouragement our participants need to finish the final 30% of the race! Sometimes people's energy are flagging by this point so a high energy and cheerful attitude is a MUST
