Volunteers are always needed to help man the checkpoints. The only requirement is plenty of enthusiasm and a desire to be a part of this great event by helping the runners along the way.
It is a great way to experience an ultra and a perfect way to see what works and doesn't work for different runners. Email me if you would like to be involved, in whatever capacity, or want more information. Volunteering at a checkpoint gains you guaranteed access to the entry process the following year. email@example.com
