Race days are important for runners. They train for months to achieve a milestone pace or distance. The early mornings, the sweat, and sometimes the tears all come together on race day. They fret over weather forecasts and clothing choices and how they will fuel and drink. Race days are big days.
But what about those of us that love running (or a runner in particular) but aren’t running the race? What if we just want to be involved in the excitement of race day? Maybe you run shorter distances but love the racing atmosphere. Maybe you are injured. Maybe you aren’t a runner but want to support your friends and family. Maybe you just enjoy cheering and being a piece of the action.
It takes a village of volunteers to put on a race. Join the Iron Horse Half Marathon team of volunteers on October 11!
There are various opportunities to get involved all throughout the weekend. These are the spots we are looking to fill:
