ROADS LESS TRAVELED RELAYS VOLUNTEER INFORMATION
Thank you for volunteering for a Roads Less Traveled Relay! Your participation as race marshals in the event should be an enjoyable experience. Only with the performance of the various duties by race marshals will this event be a success.
CHOOSING YOUR VOLUNTEER ASSIGNMENT (Team Supplied Volunteers):
Volunteers or their team Captains will be able to select their assignment online shortly after registration closes three weeks before the race. A volunteer must be registered in the database to be able to select their assignment. The process is first come, first serve. The date and time the process goes live will be announced in advance via email to the team captains and to the volunteers that are in the database.
Volunteers must be over the age of 16.
Time requirement - volunteers will work one shift that is about 4 hours.
Volunteers need to be flexible. As the relay route is 75-miles, a volunteer's assignment could be anywhere along the route and at any time during the day.
Any volunteers who are late will cause their team to receive a time penalty; if any volunteers fail to show up for their assigned duties, their team will be immediately disqualified.
INFORMATION AND TERMS TO BE FAMILIAR WITH:
The 75-mile course is divided into 15 segments called Legs. At the end of each leg is an Exchange. Each team has five runners that run the route in rotation. Each team's current runner runs a leg to the next exchange before handing a baton to the next runner in the Runner Exchange Zone.
Volunteers are stationed at Exchanges and intersections to act as Race Marshals, and to perform the following duties:
Record Exchange Times on Exchange Time Records
Ensure a safe race by keeping runners and vehicles separated, and a fair race by monitoring for rule violations
Assist drivers into Exchanges to reduce vehicle congestion
Direct runners to safely cross intersections
Vans drive to the exchange ahead of incoming runners to prepare outgoing runners.
The race start is staggered over three to four hours to spread out the runners. Team members may not congregate near Runner Exchange Areas. Only outgoing runners and the Team Timer are allowed near Runner Exchange Areas.
Zone Monitors or a Staff Member will greet and check in volunteers at the exchange, assist with setting up the Exchanges, give volunteers their t-shirts, and answer any questions.
SAFETY AND COURTESY
Since there will not be any road closures, traffic control or aid stations, participants must obey the State's Traffic Laws. Volunteers may not direct traffic.
Volunteers are expected to treat the participants with respect, volunteers should expect to be treated with respect by the participants. If any volunteer is subject to any form of abuse - physical or verbal - please alert the race director immediately and it will be taken care of.
Please follow any requests from property owners.…
