Volunteers

I am always looking for volunteers to help with timing and safety; for those of you who would like to volunteer you will get 5 race points and my deepest gratitude. Please contact me if you can help.

Aid Station

There will be a simple aid station at the Start/Finish. If there are enough volunteers I will put out a water station half way through the long run course.

Awards

There will be a small awards ceremony and BBQ after the last race in the series.
