Every team is required to provide a volunteer in order to start the race. (Not required for solo runner.) Volunteers are crucial to the safety, as well as the joy of the Gorgeous Coast Relay! There are two ways for teams to meet their volunteer requirement:
- Recruit a volunteer from your teams' friends/family/etc. Team Captains have until September 12 to recruit a volunteer. (Teams registering after 9/12/20 should have their volunteer information ready with registration.)
- A limited number of teams may Sponsor a volunteer via a $100 contribution to a local Charity Partner. 100% of your contribution goes to the nonprofit. This option will likely Sell Out!
