The 2012 Nation's Triathlon is just around the corner (just over 3 weeks away): Sunday, September 9th. We have over 500 active or recently active club members racing in our nation's capital and they can use your support.
There are many opportunities to volunteer over the entire race weekend from the expo to the positions over the course of the day during the event. This particular thread is about the club's aid station that will be on the run course.
We would like to get 15-20 people together to help out on the run course during the race. The aid station will be responsible for handing out water and Gatorade and any other materials they give us (possibly cold sponges/cloths, nutrition packs and/or ice). It is a great way to see the racers, to give back to the sport which you know and love, and to hang out with some really cool fellow club members (like me, of course!). In addition, you will get a really cool volunteer shirt as well as all the free water and Gatorade that you could possibly want.
If you would like to help us out at the aid station, please fill out THIS volunteer form. Under the Additional Question section where it asks if you are volunteering as part of a group, please put "DC Triathlon Club." Use this link ONLY. You will not find this link nor the option to volunteer at an aid station available directly through the website. Also, if you could post here or send me an email, then I can keep track of how many volunteers we have, I would appreciate it. I will send out an email with more specific instructions at a later date once I get more details about times and locations.
Thank you in advance!
And if you have spare time on Friday or Saturday, the race organizers could really use your help at packet pickup.
... and we thank you for your support.
Just signed up to help out.
Will there be free hugs like in prior years?
Alejandro - I'm told the DC Triclub water stop will be going more for the Boston Marathon's Wellesley atmosphere instead!
Luke, you can volunteer at the aid station and we can hold a Wellesley competition of who gives out the most kisses.
Just signed up.
Things that go BUMP during the day.
Could still use more help. :)
Bryan will be the best boss you ever had, I'm telling you. If you can't trust a recommendation coming from Godzilla's face, who CAN you trust?
I signed up! Godzilla convinced me :)
Bumping up. Could still use some more help. Look above for details.
I will send out an email with more details soon to everyone who has signed up, but what I do know is that we will be at the Mile 4 aid station, which is down at the bus pull-thru area of Hains Point.
We are hoping to have the club tent and the sound system down there to help out our party zone. :)
Count me in.
signed up too
I signed up!
Signed up as well!
I might stop by to supervise Bryan again :)
I'm going to make you hand out Gatorade and free hugs if you do stop by Tuan. :)
I signed up! What time do we need to be there?
I will have details to everyone in an email tomorrow morning. With directions, times, and specifics etc.
So stay tuned! :)
