Volunteer groups are needed to distribute t-shirts, check gear and organize start corrals, among many other vital roles, and that process starts with you! Group leaders are responsible for recruiting volunteers, sharing assignment information, relaying registration instructions and keeping their group on task and organized on the day of the event.
