MPRD Just Tri It Triathlon
Welcome to the Manhattan Parks and Recreation Department (MPRD) Just Tri It Adult & Youth Triathlon Volunteer sign up page. This is the 6th consecutive year we have held the Youth event and the 3rd year for the Adult race.
The Adult race will begin at 7:00 AM on August 11th, 2018 and the Youth race will begin at 9:30 AM.
We need volunteers for both races, you can sign up for just the Adult race, Youth race or both. If you wish to volunteer for both please sign up for both positions. It is anticipated that Adult race volunteers will need to show up at 6:15 AM and Youth race volunteers at 8:30 AM.
We again have the support of the Riley County Police Department (RCPD) who will be manning the main intersections along Poyntz Ave. for the Adult race and then the four main intersections around City Park for the Youth race. We will however need volunteers to man all of the intersecting streets and alleyways for both races.
For the Adult race volunteers will monitor each side of Poyntz Ave during both the bike and run portions of the race to ensure vehicles do not enter the race course. The same holds true for the Youth race along the perimeter roads of City Park., however one person can typically man each of these intersections or alleyways. If you volunteer for both races you will just move from one location to the next once the Adult race is over, a race director will inform you of when to change locations.
There are other volunteer opportunities beside the bike courses but those are the most critical positions needed. Having the bike courses fully covered ensures the safest course for both the Adult and Youth racers and ensures our continued support by RCPD.
The race 'director' positions that are listed have been pre selected so please do not sign up for one of those positions.
When signing up please provide your name, email and t-shirt size. To be guaranteed a volunteer T-Shirt please be sure to sign up no later than July 26th.
Indicate T-Shirt size by the following designations: XS, S, M, L, XL, XXL, XXXL
Please sign up each volunteer individually, this will ensure that we get an accurate count of the volunteers and ensure that we get the t-shirts ordered correctly.
The volunteer meeting will be at 6pm on Thursday, August 9th, at Wefald Pavilion in City Park.
Please feel free to share this link with anyone you think might be interested in volunteering.
Thanks for helping to make this event possible and great!
