On Thursday of camp the runners will be doing a Long Run. This is an out and back course that leaves from camp and heads out on the road for six miles. The runners will have a set mileage to achieve on the out and back course.
Things will be run differently from years past in that no volunteers can meet at Camp first. You will report direct to your location on the course map, once all runners have passed your location and headed back to camp you will pack up and head back home. We are asking that all water stop locations wear masks and gloves out of an abundance of caution for the runners and camp. The volunteers at the finish line we are asking have medical training, be fully vaccinated, and be masked/gloved.
We have three job posts to fill: Water Stop locations, Course Marshals, and Finish Line at Camp.
For the water stop locations the water jugs will be dropped off at the location along with cups. We ask that you bring a table for your location and garbage bags. For your water stop feel free to BYO Gatorade, oranges, bananas, granola bars to provide to the runners. In the past volunteers have decorated their locations and played music for motivation. Also keep in mind for the 2 mile and 4 mile stop you will have most of the runners pass you twice. The course will be marked with a W in spray paint to note your location on the route.
For Course Marshalls we have 13 locations along the route where we just need eyes on the road to keep the runners safe. This job is for blind spots/hills along the route to alert drivers of runners on the road and also to alert the runners heads up and get them in single file if needed. The course will be marked with an X in spray paint to note your location on the route.
For Finish Line, we are asking for anyone with Medical training to pick this position. We are also asking that these 4 volunteers be vaccinated out of an abundance of caution for the Campers and Camp Workers. We are working with the Camp on this piece and trying to do our best to insure the safety of everyone. This role will be to cheer in the runners, anyone who needs medical attention to get them what they need, and also to help support water needs and the pre-packaged food that will be provided.
Finish Line food donations are being asked for if you are not able to be with us and want to donate food select one of the slots. We are also taking cash donations as well and will purchase the food.
The course map will be provided via Coach Walsh. I will also have copies to distribute and available for pick up as well.
