You can help with race registration, passing out medals, handing out waters and more. If you have a lot of energy and want to cheer our runners on, Volunteer with us!
When you are signing up a group to volunteer, each person's information must be entered. We cannot accommodate volunteer groups unless each volunteer registers for a shift. (i.e. If one person signs up and notes that they are bringing 20 people, we will only count that as 1 volunteer registration.)
If you are a group of 10 or more, please send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org
