Volunteers Needed For 2013

Typical Jobs (continued)
Participants have to be marked so that they can be identified as they exit the water following the swim portion of the race. This is done to assist officials during the event, as this is their way of identifying participants. Body marking is also done to assist the official race photographers. Participants are marked with black magic markers. Volunteers write the participant's number CLEARLY and LEGIBLY on both arms and on both upper legs.
These are the folks who assist with serving the beverages and food to participants following the event.
Volunteers are needed to direct the arriving participants in designated parking areas.
During the run portion of the event, we have aid stations set up for the participants. Volunteers typically hand participants cups filled with water and/or energy drinks. At selected events (longer events), the aid stations are also stocked with energy gel and other food items. Most of the time, the aid stations only have drinks. It's always a good idea to have one member of the aid station crew assigned to picking up cups during the event. This will save a lot of time when the event is over.
Packet Pick-Up & Registration:
Volunteers are always needed to assist our event staff at packet pick-up/registration. Prior to the event, participants must check-in. They receive their official event numbers, packet of information, t-shirts, swim caps, etc. This function takes place for two hours prior to the race.
So, does this sound like something you would enjoy doing? If you're not going to be a participant in the triathlon, we would love having you volunteer. Still not sure? Why not contact our Volunteer Coordinator (Lanie Hughes) and see if she has just the place for you to help. Please accept our thanks now. The participants will be thanking you, too!
Swim - Bike - Run
