We credit the success of our event to the outstanding efforts of our volunteers. Volunteers are needed to help at the packet pick-up on Friday night as well as during the race on Saturday. Various volunteer duties include water stations, traffic coordination, cheering stations, etc. We guarantee volunteering at this event will inspire you!
Runners need all the motivation they can get! We encourage neighborhoods to have a “lawn party” if the course runs by your house, businesses to allow employees to cheer as runners pass, and families/friends to set up cheering stations along the route to support the athletes. If you are interested in being part of a spectator group, contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more details.
3 ways to support the runners
• Bring something that makes noise, such as a bell, horn, or boom box.
• Wear something that stands out, such as a colorful wig or a costume.
• Make a sign. Cheer on your friend (“Go Mark!”) or cheer everyone (“Way To Go,” “You Can Do It!”).
2 Things to yell at runners
• “You’re doing great!”
• “You’re looking good!”
1 Be creative
- Funny signs break up the long run and are a good distraction for a runner. Here are some sample “Funny Signs” for runners:
“Don’t stop…people are watching”
“If it was easy, I would do it”
“Your feet hurt because you are kicking so much butt”
“Run like someone’s chasing you”
