Frequently Asked Questions About Volunteering
You will be contacted within a week or two of signing up with additional information and what you will need to do next. Prior to the race, you will receive an email with specific details regarding your task, responsibilities and shifts, as well as parking information and other helpful instructions. Note: if you signed up as part of a group, you will receive further e-mails from your group Captain.
Group or Organization
You need a minimum of 20 people to volunteer with your group, however there are some tasks with a minimum requirement of 10 volunteers. A group Captain is required for each volunteer group/organization and each job assignment.
Each volunteer job has a maximum number of positions available for that specific job assignment. If your group has more volunteers than the maximum # available and you would like another assignment, that group will be assigned to a different assignment. Please note that you will need one group Captain for each job assignment.
Your group/organization will receive a $25 donation per volunteer/per shift.
A check will be mailed to you within 30 days after the event.
The minimum age to volunteer is 8 years old. The official age for an unaccompanied child to volunteer is 16, however some positions do allow for children under 16. There must be one adult for every two youths 15 years old or younger. We are sorry but you will not receive a donation for children under the minimum age. We want to ensure the safety of all our volunteers and athletes. Please direct any questions regarding children to the volunteer coordinator at firstname.lastname@example.org.
