*All relay teams, regardless of size, are required to bring 1 volunteer who is available for the duration of the event*

Volunteers will be on a schedule, and that schedule will be published in advance so everyone is on the same page. Number of shifts and length of shifts will vary depending on the number of teams we get. Duties include but are not limited to: road crossing marshals, directing runners on course, solo aid station & more.

Thank you in advance for your understanding!
