Run Back to School Group Volunteers
The 11th annual MPS Run Back to School is coming on Saturday, August 25, 2018, and we are once again looking for volunteers just like YOU to help make this exciting event better than ever!
There are many ways to volunteer, including cheering on walkers and runners as a course marshal and passing out water at water stations. All volunteer assignments will be done no later than 10:30 am. Your race captain will officially dismiss you after the last runner/walker has passed your designated area.
7:30 a.m. - All volunteers check in at the volunteer tent.
8:00 a.m. - Area Captains meet with volunteers and report to assigned locations.
9:00 a.m. - Run/walk begins.
10:30 a.m. - Run/walk ends (when all runners/walkers have passed the finish line).
11:00 a.m. - Entertainment and carnival games end.
If your group would like to volunteer, simply complete and submit the form below. Then, we'll contact you soon with more information. Thank you for your interest and support!

Course Marshal Description: Help with course set up and take down. During run/walk, stand at designated location to provide visibility and direct the runners/walkers. After the last runner/walk has passed, collect cones or any other equipment in your designated area and return to staging area.
Water Station Description: Pass out cups of water to runners/walkers. Use dispensers to pre-fill a number of cups to be ready to hand out in quick succession. Collect all discarded cups into garbage bags. Bring drink/water dispensers, any empty bottles and extra water/cups to the finish line.
After submitting your volunteer application, you will be called or emailed to confirm your Run Back to School volunteer group assignment and report time carefully. Unless noted, all volunteers should report by 7:30 a.m. to the Volunteer Tent at Wick Field. Following registration, our orientation session for all volunteers will then begin at 8:00 a.m. sharp, so please make sure yo give yourself plenty of time to arrive, sign in, pick up your volunteer t-shirt, and get ready for the fun to begin! All volunteer assignments will be done no later than 10:30 a.m. Your race captain will officially dismiss you after the last runner/walker has passed your designated area. Information regarding what to wear, where to check in, where to park, etc. and map of the RBTS course will also be provided. The course is a lovely walk/run through Washington Park and the Washington Heights neighborhood!
