Volunteering at the VT100 – What To Know
Welcome to the VT100 blog post that covers most everything you’d need to know about volunteering at the VT100 – from the duties and perks available, to what to download to be prepared, and even a little bit on our volunteer recognition awards
Oh, and we don’t want to wait till the end to say it, so before we dive in, please know how much we appreciate all of our amazing VT100 volunteers! Without your help, our event would never be the success it is year after year. Not only is volunteering is a great way to give back to the running community, but it’s also an excellent way to learn about a race before running it.
Not sure what to help with? We also have a general volunteer sign up form here, where you can share a bit more about yourself and we’ll help find a duty, day, and time that will work for both of us.
Tell Me About the Perks!
VT100 volunteers all get sweet VT100 t-shirts (as long as you volunteer at least 5 hours), tons of high fives, a boat load of thank yous, and more self-satisfaction for giving back than you could shake a stick at.
In order to guarantee your volunteer t-shirt size: You need to sign up by May 14th. We will do our best to get enough shirts and the correct sizes for everyone who signs up after May 14th.
We need over 500 volunteers to pull this off. Don’t hesitate: sign-up today!
Volunteer Opportunities Include
- Packing food boxes days before the race
- Setting up aid stations (Friday night)
- Setting up the start/finish (Thursday, Friday)
- Serving food and good cheer at aid stations (Saturday – Sunday)
- Checking the runners in at the finish (Saturday – Sunday)
- Cleaning up after the awards ceremony (Sunday night)
- Amateur HAM radio operators (Saturday – Sunday)
