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 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 23 to recruit a volunteer. (Teams registering after 5/23/20 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!
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.)
Want to be guaranteed a volunteer spot at the Finish Party? We need one or two volunteers that have an OLCC service permit. Let us know!
Volunteers will be sent a link on Sunday, May 24 to sign up for their shift. In order for teams to fulfill their volunteer requirement, your volunteer must sign up for a position!
Volunteers are invited, and encouraged, to join us for the celebration at the finish party and a free beer!
Sponsor a volunteer
When you Sponsor a volunteer, you are supporting great nonprofit organizations and schools in the communities we run through. 100% of your Sponsorship funds are contributed to the organization providing your team's volunteer. Contributions are made to Charity Partners based on their volunteer capacity.
