Captains are responsible for overseeing all aid station activities. They will be on radio and in frequent communication with the event staff. Previous trail race or aid station volunteer experience is required. Aid Station Captains will assist in the recruitment of aid station teams for their aid station.

Primary race day responsibilities: manage aid station volunteers, track runners, relay information to Race Director and provide directional assistance.

Course Marshals will be positioned at key intersections on-course to provide directional assistance to runners as they maneuver the trails. In certain situations, course marshals will be on radio or stationed at road crossings where runners are required to yield to vehicular traffic. These positions require a minimum age of 18, unless accompanied by an adult.

Festival volunteers will help event staff manage and monitor the Finish Line Festival. Various positions are available and include: runner check-in, onsite packet pickup, race food tent, parking, gear check, finish line crew and festival breakdown.

Volunteers assist event staff in distributing race numbers and gear to participants on Thursday and Friday prior to race weekend at the designated Packet Pickup locations.
