Start & Finish Line Volunteer
This group is in charge of helping to setup the start/finish line area, organize the runners as they assemble, handout finisher medals at the end and perform ad hoc jobs as needed.
Water Marshals are positioned at various points on the course in teams to hand out water, electrolyte drinks or gels to runners as needed. Water Marshals cheer and encourage the runners and help keep the runners motivated and hydrated!
The Green Team is responsible for collecting and recycling any items left along the course and ensuring the route is clean, and ready to open back up. This position will require some walking and minor lifting as team members walk the route in sections.
Outdoor Trails Clean Up
As part of the course goes through pedestrian paths, the Outdoor Trails Crew will be responsible for walking the paths and clearing any debris that may be a hazard to runners.
Traffic Marshals work in conjunction with the Police Departments to provide direction and information to any vehicles, cyclists or pedestrians that may encounter the course. Being placed at minor intersections, Traffic Marshals are a vital role to the event and ensure that runners can safely follow the course with the least possible interruptions from traffic. Please note this position involves attending a mandatory training session.
Pace Officials are the “cut-off” points at Miles 6 & 9 that enforce that runners are meeting the 14 minute per mile pace. At the two cut-off points, volunteers will remind runners how much time they have left, along with help runners step to the side and forfeit the race if they cannot keep that timeframe. Pace officials enforce the safety of our runners as police open roads to traffic.
Traffic Cyclists work together as a team to ride in front of, within and at the back of the pack of runners. They help to alert water stations, course officials and spectators when runners will be coming through and most importantly keep the runners safe throughout the course. Please note this position involves attending a mandatory training session.
