Event Description: 

The 4th Annual Run for the Woods will be here before we know it! There are a lot of different ways to become involved as a volunteer at this exciting event. 

Leading up to the event we need assistance in getting the word out and preparing the course. We ask for volunteers to:

  • Promote Run for the Woods to your friends and families
  • Be the captain of a team
  • Recruit runners and teammates
  • Mark the course a the day before the event to ensure race participants do not get lost

The day of the event also needs volunteer support in the following ways:

  • Assisting by running the course before the event to ensure a safe and understandable route
  • Assisting in placing volunteers on the course
  • Monitoring the parking situation as participants arrive
  • Assisting participants in locating registration/water/food/etc.
  • Registration of race participants
  • Monitoring the food and water tables
  • Being staged along the course at specific locations to ensure the race participants are not getting off course
  • Running the course after the race to pick up trash
  • Assisting to ensure all race participants return safely

Volunteers for this event are imperative to a smooth and fun day. Plus you receive a CFPA Volunteer T-Shirt! We hope you will be able to lend a hand on Sept. 10th. If you are available to help in one of the ways listed above please contact Liz Fossett, contact information below.
