V is for Volunteering
If you are interested in being added to the notification list for volunteer opportunities, simply send an email to Beverly Pickens and let her know if you want to be on the weekly list or the special event list. Each week, a call for volunteers is sent out and you are asked to respond if you can work a particular event. Then the day before the event, the job list is sent out. For each race you earn 10 Volunteer Points which gives you an entry into a monthly drawing for prizes and other goodies.
We would love to have you!
Other ways of "giving something back" to the running community include working on special projects, serving on a committee, or serving in an office. If you're interested in helping, contact Beverly Pickens.
As you know, MRTC is a non-profit organization made up solely of unpaid volunteers (with the exception of an administrative secretary who receives a very minimal salary). Our goal is to promote running in as many various ways as possible. Administering the finish lines at races is one of these ways. Sometimes, this takes only a handful of volunteers and sometimes, it takes many more, depending on the size of the race.
At the Holiday Party in January the Top Twenty non-board member volunteers will receive a gift as a thank you from MRTC.
