COURSE MONITORS
MARCH 10 | 7:00 AM - 11:00 AM (times will vary depending on location)
Course monitors are positioned at various points on the 5K and half-marathon race courses to ensure that runners follow the correct route and assist law enforcement with traffic control. Course monitors serve an integral part of the race as they are also charged with encouraging and cheering on race participants as they pass each point. Course monitors be at least 18 years of age.

WATER STOP
MARCH 10 | 6:30 AM - 11:00 AM (times will vary depending on location)
Positioned at various points on the race course, water stop volunteers ensure runners have water &/or performance beverage as needed. Water stop volunteers also cheer the runners on as they pass. Water stops are reserved for groups, a great way for teams to earn points in the Corporate Team Challenge (water stops are limited to no more than 15 people).

FINISH LINE
MARCH 10 | 6:30 AM - 11:30 AM (times will vary depending on location)
Positioned at the finish line, volunteers prep refreshments and cheer runners across the finish line. Volunteers will ensure that refreshment remain available for all runners and hand out finish medals to the race participants.
