VOLUNTEERING:

With any race comes a small army that works behind the scenes to make it all happen. We think volunteers are the MOST important part of any race and we do our best to provide them with the best as well. If you have never been on the other side of the table than give it a shot.

Organizing a group to staff an aid station can be a great fundraiser opportunity for your organization. Earn up to $250 for your cause or that money can be used towards travel expenses among the members of your group, use it however you see fit.  

Volunteer Shifts Range from 4-8 hours depending on event.

All of Our volunteers will receive:

Free park entry, an area to camp,  race merchandise, and a provided meal on race day.
