Easiest job we have! Sit in a chair by the parking lot. As cars arrive, you check to make sure they're actually a volunteer and then you move cones aside and direct them to the appropriate parking location (you will be given instructions before race day). Must be willing and able to arrive by 6:00 a.m. You'll be finished by 8 and can run or just join the party!
Greet volunteers as they arrive, make sure everyone receives a volunteer shirt and knows their assignment and where to go.
Meet at Hutchinson Elementary School parking lot and prepare for the event. This will include things like putting out signs and banners, setting up tents, tables and chairs, trash and recycling bins, etc.
We need a couple of good photographers to take photos after the race, of runners in front of the step and repeat banner. Must have good photo skills and the ability to upload photos within 24 hours to a cloud in order to share with the DDD Foundation, Inc. Photographers will take turns so that one person doesn't get stuck in one spot all morning.
Unpack food and beverage from boxes. Set up on tables. Restock tables as needed. Pack up whatever is left at the end of the event.
Set up tables and signage for water station at the mid-way point along route. Assemble cups and pre-fill with water, and quickly replace as runners begin coming through. Once runners are past, pick up scattered cups and break down the water station.
Help runners bag a change of clothes or other personal items, tag bags, and keep organized. Then return the bag when runners return with their claim check.
Set up trophies by placement. Distribute trophies to winners in various team and age categories from the Awards Table.
Hand medals and bottles of water to finishers as they cross the finish line.
Before the race, assist runners with checking in or registering for the race, receiving their bib and directing them to the starting line or gear check. After the race, distribute runner shirts.
THIS IS OUR MOST IMPORTANT JOB! Course monitors assist the police officers in keeping runners on the correct course, and being alert for safety issues.
