Support your friends and cheer them on!
Volunteers are integral and crucial elements in making our events viable. Volunteer tasks include, among others: providing aid, water and food, keeping runners on course, cheering runners on and keeping spirits up. They are also there to have fun and enjoy the experience of the race from a different perspective. And most importantly, they make the race safer for everyone involved! You’ve probably seen and thanked many volunteers at past events, but what better way to say thanks and give back than to be a volunteer yourself? After your experience, you will appreciate the volunteers at future events that much more! In exchange you’ll get a goody bag and refreshments and more importantly, you will be rewarded with the pride in knowing you helped to make the event happen, and that many runners finished because of the help you offered. If you’d like to volunteer or need more information, please contact us at (305) 538-8899 or send an email to our volunteer coordinator Liz, email@example.com
