Gallop in the Garden 5K Fun Run


Project Description:

Thank you so much for your interest in helping the “Gallop In The Garden 5K Fun Run”.  Volunteers are needed for 2 – 2.5 hour shifts on one or more Thursdays.  These positions are for 16 year olds and up.  13 – 15 year old volunteers allowed with supervising adult present. 


There are three task we need help with:


1.  Greeting and registering participants.


Greeters begin at 3:30pm and end at 6:00pm.  Responsibilities include: Setting up registration table with information, brochures, and computer for check in.  Greet runners, and tell them about the routes available that week.  Sign up new runners that drop in, and pass out cards to runners preregistered on-line.


2.  Setting route flags


Flag Setters arrive at the Visitor and Nature Center any time before 3:00pm to set route flags.  This position walks/runs the 5K route selected for that Thursday to place directional flags for runners.  Additional routes may be available each week that will need to be marked with flags.   


3.  Removing flags at the end of the event.


Flag Clean-up, All flags must be removed from all routes at the conclusion of the Fun Run/Walk each week.  This position arrives at the Visitor and Nature Center any time after 6:00pm to remove route flags.  Flags need to be returned to the Visitor and Nature Center once removed.


Thank you!  We look forward to hearing from you.
