Events of this type can ALWAYS use volunteers.

If you, a family member, friend, business, group, or service league, would like to assist and support our participants, we’d love to have you at the event. This is also a great opportunity for students to earn community service hours for school requirements.

In addition to helping our participants enjoy a great experience, you’ll receive a comfortable volunteer shirt and be invited to the post-race picnic, which is free to our athletes and volunteers.
