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 Portland Pub Relay. There are two ways for teams to meet their volunteer requirement:
- Recruit a volunteer from your teams' friends/family/etc. Teams have until April 28 to recruit a volunteer. (Teams registering after 4/28/19 should have their volunteer information ready with registration.)
- A limited number of teams may Sponsor a volunteer via a $100 contribution to JOIN. SOLD OUT! Email your Team Name and Captain's name if you'd like to be notified if additional Sponsored volunteers become available.
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 are invited and encouraged to join us for the celebration at the finish party and a free beer!
A few days after the volunteer deadline, volunteers will be sent a link to a form where they can select their own position and sign the Volunteer Release.
