Course Marshal for the 2014 Collegiate Nationals Bike Race

Richmond 2015 is seeking committed individuals to serve as course marshals during the USA Cycling Collegiate Road Nationals Friday, May 2nd, Saturday, May 3rd and Sunday, May 4th, 2014.  The course marshal role is considered to be the “best seat in the house” as they're literally on the race route, assisting race organizers with crowd control and traffic safety as the racers speed by.

Each volunteer will receive a volunteer t-shirt to commemorate the event, snacks and drink during their shift and a 15% discount code to use on Richmond 2015 merchandise.  In addition, if you volunteer for 2014, Richmond 2015 will set you up with your first choice of volunteer role for the 2015 World Championships when the best men and women cyclists, from all over the world, race through the streets of the Richmond region.

    How long does this event last? I ask because I have to work on weekdays. Also, I have never done anything like this. I would like to do it though as long as I won't be really late for work. Thanks so much!

      Thanks Mike, the event is all weekend; Friday May 2nd from 7:30am - 5pm, Saturday May 3rd from 7am - 8pm and Sunday May 4th from 6:30am - 8pm. The course marshal role does not require prior experience. We will train you to assist with crowd control. If you work Friday, I suggest you look at the Sunday shifts. Saturday shifts are pretty much filled at this point. This is a great opportunity to see the racers in action and get you ready for the World Cycling Championships in September of 2015. To register, go to­unteer. Thanks a lot for your interest. I hope you will decide to help!
