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 Portland Pub 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 April 28 to recruit a volunteer. Teams registering after 4/28 should have their volunteer information ready with registration. Email first to see if sponsoring a volunteer is still an option.
- A limited number of teams may Sponsor a volunteer via a $100 contribution to JOIN. 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 are they are required to wear to allow runners identify them). Volunteers are invited and encouraged to join us for the celebration at the finish party and a free beer!
Because the course is a secret, volunteers will be assigned positions closer to race date. All positions are in the close in Portland, east or west side.
