Directing runners and keeping them safe along the route are key. Cheering on runners and having fun aren't requirements, but runners sure appreciate it!

Duties include understanding the course route and stopping pedestrian and/or vehicle traffic while runners cross.

Location

Meet at Memorial Stadium no later than 7:15 a.m., check in, and then head to your designated spot.

Your mission will be complete when the last walker passes your area (they will be wearing a road safety vest). There is no requirement to return to the stadium lot at the end of your shift, however, you are welcome to enjoy post-race refreshments if you'd like.
