Why Racing Events local contacts
Let us honor the brave men and women who have or are currently serving in our Armed Forces and remember those who have given the ultimate sacrifice fighting for our freedom. This Memorial Day Mile and 5k/10k/Half Marathon running and walking event will benefit NW Battle Buddies, an organization that provides Service Dogs for our Veterans as well as various other military groups and non-profits.
We will ask all volunteers to dress up in red, white and blue and/or their Armed Forces uniform (if a veteran or currently serving) if possible to add to the festivities and remind us why we are doing this.
This event requires a ton of volunteers so if you can recruit friends, family, companies, churches, or sports teams to help that would be extremely helpful. They will get front row seats to all the action!
In addition, our events offer a terrific fundraising opportunity for a club/organization (non-profit) and a fun, inspiring way to encourage and support the athletes that participate in these events. Under our fundraising program, $20-$25 will be donated to the non-profit organization for each volunteer 4-6+hour shift depending on our needs. All the volunteers will also get a snack, gift, goody bag and be able to enjoy the post-race festivities.
We typically need about 100 volunteers per day for most events with tasks such as water stations, course marshals, food prep, finish line, set up and clean up. It's entirely possible you will need to drive your vehicle to get to your position on the course or in the process of set up and tear down, so please plan accordingly. Sometimes carpooling sounds like a great idea until you realize your group signed up for positions that are spread out over the course and really needed more vehicles to get around and be on time. Keep that in mind when signing up and deciding how to get to the event on race day.
Review the volunteer assignments, sign up for the task and time that works best for you and we'll reach out to you with details as we get closer to the event. If you have any questions, please contact [email protected]
*NOTE* Please know that we try our hardest to keep all volunteers in the positions they originally request however, if critical race positions haven't been filled by race morning we may ask you fill in a key position. Thank you so much, we couldn't do it without you!
