The packet preparation process is relatively easy and fun but requires efficiency and accuracy. Volunteers will assemble packets with bibs and runner supplies. Music, food, beverages and good company will be provided to all who contribute their energy and time!
All volunteers must register online individually by Sunday, March 15, 2020 at 11:59 p.m. Central Time.
Please review the volunteer policies before registering, and note that volunteers must be at least age 16 on the day they volunteer and must be available for the entirety of the volunteer shift.
