Volunteers Needed for the Midland Run
(Click here for a printable sign-up form for both volunteering and for the RVRR Picnic)
May is Midland Run month, and as always volunteers are needed. This year volunteers are needed for two tasks. The first task is an RVRR effort to (wo)man the course clocks; the second task of finish line crew does not involve RVRR, Inc. directly, but is a crucial element of the races smooth execution. Midland race director Mark Zamek supports RVRR greatly by paying RVRR a management fee for the clock support on the course.
1. Clock Stations: Sam Bianca is organizing volunteers for managing the clock stations on the course. Approximately 15 volunteers are needed. Firm committments are needed as well, as the organization of the clocks is an essential element of the races prestige. Please plan to have a backup in case you cannot make it on race day. Volunteers are needed to (wo)man the course clocks for the 10 mile/15K and 5K races. The job is easy and the view of the race is spectacular. The Midland Run pays RVRR, Inc. a significant fee (ca. $700 in 1997) for performing this task. Please consider taking a clock station, or have a family member or friend take a clock while you race. Please contact Sam at (732) 463-1462 if you can help.
2. Finish Line: Volunteers are also needed for finish line assistance. Thousands of runners coming across the finish line require many volunteers to keep them moving and organized. If you or a stand-in for you volunteer for the 5K, you will receive a comped (free) entry into the 15K. If you or a stand-in for you volunteer for the 15K/10 mile, you will receive a comped entry into the 5K. You need to fill out a race entry form, and get it to Roger Price (732-752-1654) by April 22nd.
