Come race with us!Volunteers: We need lot's of volunteers for this race. Contact early and you can bring a partner and race for free. We have a volunteer/run free program at You can save a free race comp for yourself at one of our other comparable races, or a friend can run this race for free. We put the volunteer to work at one of the water stops out on the course. It's actually quite a bit of fun and the runners really appreciate it. This is a double-loop marathon course, and the volunteer will see everyone 2-4 times at the water stops. Once you commit, we really count on the volunteer to staff the water stop. I need everyone there at the beginning of registration (6:30 a.m.) to help us get through that first. The park opens at 6:30 a.m. and there will be a line at the gate. The volunteer will be stationed with someone else and we shuttle them out to water stops as the race starts, and back near the end. We have essential supplies at the stops (water, t.p., sunscreen, etc.). It would be great if you had a cell phone and a chair is nice until the runners start coming. Please note: The Marathon course (and 1/2 marathon) will only be monitored for 6 1/2 hours. Only attempt the full Marathon if you think you can complete the race in that time.
