Volunteers

What are you doing race weekend?  Want to be of real help to lots of amazing athletes?  These are a few of the areas where your volunteer help would be greatly appreciated--at all UltraSports races.

During the Race:

Aid stations along the race route
Work at an aid station to offer runners water, food, ice and more as they arrive, and support runners as needed.  Note runner's arrival on checklist.  Choose your location and hours of service from the list on the Volunteer registration page on each race’s website.  Positions are filled on a first come, first served basis. Note: This is a great way to accrue required school service credits.
        
You and your group may "own" an aid station:  You and your friends or organization may take full responsibility for a site--even decorate it and be creative in support of the runners.  Contact Race Director Bob Becker directly to discuss the details.   (This email address is being protected from spambots.

Finish line support: Greet arriving runners with well-earned applause. Hand out medals and buckles, retrieve drop bags, prep and offer food and drinks, and much more.  We celebrate accomplishment here.
