We are looking for volunteers on Sunday March 26 for the Windward Half Marathon.
Course Marking with Coach Kawika. This is a very early morning position and takes a special kind of person. Set out cones, arrows, and mile markers starting at 3 AM
Course Marshals. This is a pretty easy and rewarding job of standing on a corner to direct runners on the course. Seems kind of basic, however when you are out there running and tired and not thinking straight, it only takes a moment to miss a cone and get off course. Report at 5:30 AM and then go to your assigned corner. Please ask your family, neighbor, friend, co-worker to assist. We have set a goal of 10 to 13 people from our group.
