The Miwok 100K could not take place without many wonderful volunteers who mark the course, prepare food for and work at the aid stations and the start/finish, and help remove the ribbons and clean up afterwards.
If you’d like to be indispensable (and have a lot of fun without running all that way), let us know when you’re available.
- Eight hours of volunteer work at Miwok fulfills the WS100 and some other 100-miler service requirements.
- Eight hours of volunteer work at the Miwok 100K also gets you an extra ticket in the following year’s Miwok entry lottery.
If you’re running the race, consider asking a friend or two to come along as volunteers. You’ll all have fun, and you won’t have to drive yourself all the way home after running 62 miles!
2017 Volunteer Opportunities:
- Friday, 5/5 – Mark a section of the course.
- Saturday, 5/6 – Staff an aid station (times and locations vary)
- Saturday, 5/6 – Sweep a 10- to 15-mile section of the course, following tight behind the last runners.
