This is our greatest need! Corner Marshals provide safety
to both the riders and motor vehicle and pedestrian traffic along
the race route. Volunteers will be responsible for controlling intersections
throughout each day's events. Specific areas will be assigned, but
volunteers will be posted at key crossroads throughout the Friday
and Saturday road races, along the finishing stretch in Fayetteville
for Friday's road race on Dickson Street and on Sunday's criterium
course in the downtown area. Volunteer Coordinator, Rena
Goodwin at 479-387-7667 with any specific questions.
We need volunteers to help on both Friday and Saturday in the feed
zones. Feed Zones are areas on the course that the riders pass through
and receive hand-ups in the form of water, bananas, energy gels
and bars. This is an exciting area and one that the riders really
appreciate. Please contact Volunteer Coordinator, Rena
Goodwin at 479-387-7667with any specific questions.
Work with our logistics' coordinator to get the race courses, as
well as the start/finish areas ready each day for racing. This will
involve some heavy lifting, setting up crowd control barricades,
placing cones, sweeping corners of debris, erecting scaffolding,
hanging banners. It's hard work, but your efforts are very visible!!
