Every team is required to provide a volunteer in order to start the race. Volunteers are crucial to the safety, as well as the joy, of the Gorgeous Hood to Hood Relay. There are two ways for teams to meet their volunteer requirement:
- Recruit a volunteer from your teams' friends/family/etc. Teams have until May 21 to recruit a volunteer. However! volunteers who sign up sooner have more choices of their position.
- A limited number of teams may Sponsor a volunteer via a $100 contribution to the Mazamas. Deadline is May 21. See form below.
Recruit a volunteer
Race volunteers generally have at least as much fun as the runners! Teams should recruit a volunteer who:
Volunteers are stationed either at an Exchange to direct vans and runners, on course to direct runners, or at the start or finish for set-up, operations, and take-down. (Unfortunately, they are not suitable for bringing children.)
Volunteers get a brightly colored t-shirt (which they are required to wear to allow runners to identify them). Volunteers are invited and encouraged to join us for the celebration at the finish party, and enjoy a free beer!
Once your volunteer is signed up, they'll be sent a link to a form where they can select their own position and sign the Volunteer Release. The sooner you sign them up, the more choices they get!
Volunteers enjoy the finish party after their shift!
