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. Teams registering after 5/20 should have their volunteer information ready with registration.
- A limited number of teams may Sponsor a volunteer via a $100 contribution to the Mazamas. Deadline is May 21. SOLD 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.)
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!
Two weeks before the race, they'll be sent a link to a form where they can select their own position and sign the Volunteer Release.
Volunteers enjoy the finish party after their shift!
