Bucks County Roadrunners
Welcome to the 2021-2022 Bucks County Roadrunners Winter Series! We're happy that we get to put on a full Winter Series this year and see all of our crazy runner friends on Sunday morning runs again.
We're using the same system, SignUpGenius (SUG), for volunteer signup again this year. Note that we've assessed the number of volunteers needed based on each individual race this year in an effort to get better volunteer participation across all races. Please be aware that the Winter Series only runs smoothly if we have volunteers, so please keep that in mind even if you're not in the running for an Age-Group award and/or don't want the Winter Series mug.
Frequently Asked Questions:
Q: Do I have to volunteer ? A: If you want to accumulate Winter Series points towards Age Group and Overall Awards competition, Yes. Furthermore, you MUST volunteer at a race to be eligible for a Winter Series mug.
Q: Can I volunteer and still run the races? A: No, to keep things fair, we need to have volunteers only be volunteers for their selected race.
Q: Do I have to use SignUpGenius to volunteer ? A: YES, please. On-line sign-up is very efficient and reduces errors. If you have trouble with SUG, email us (Jackie and Jason Devine) at [email protected] You can also call or text us at [Jay: (267) 334-6773 or Jackie: (719) 331-4894]. Note: We will help resolve any problems, but still need everyone to be responsible for their own signup on the site.
Q: Will I receive an email confirmation of my volunteer assignment from the Club ? A: No. However, you will be able to see your name show up in the volunteer list for your race in SUG. If you do NOT see your name, please try again. The Race Director for your race will be in contact by email starting approximately 1-2 weeks beforehand to discuss assignment details.
Q: Can I just show up at a race that's convenient for me and volunteer without using SignUpGenius and still get volunteer credit ? A: Unfortunately, NO. Race directors plan their volunteer placement in the week or two ahead of time and unless we're very short-handed, they will have people already assigned to where they want them to be.
Q: I need to sign up my (friend, wife, husband, etc.) Can I do this on SUG? A: Yes. HOWEVER, we need individual names and emails for EACH volunteer so the Race Director/Volunteer Director can communicate with EACH of you
Q: Something's come up and I need to change/cancel my sign-up. How do I do that ? A: Use SUG to withdraw/delete your current slot and then sign-up for another available slot. Please give as much notice as possible (i.e. hopefully week in advance minimum if circumstances allow). Again, you can contact Jay and Jackie if you have trouble with this.
Q: I prefer a certain volunteering role. Can I pick .. registration.. parking.. sweeper, etc. ? A: The Race Director will have to decide based on staffing for the race. They will certainly try to work with you and be flexible, especially if you are injured or have medical/health restrictions. You can make use of the "My Comments" field when you sign-up and/or communicate by email with the RD.
Q: Can I volunteer more than once ? A: Yes (and THANK YOU ! The Winter Series runs entirely on volunteerism)
See you all soon !
