You won’t get another offer like this one. (Until next year.) Here’s your chance to finally work for the fun of it…
The 40th consecutive annual One Day Hike will take place this year on Saturday, Apr 27. The ODH is a fully supported event that requires about 100 volunteers to put on. If you are a veteran volunteer, and want to reprise your role or would like to try something different, or you are an interested newbie, please let me know. Volunteers must be dependable and hardy – showing up to work on time and regardless of weather. First-time volunteers get a free ODH T-shirt as a small token of appreciation. Volunteers are needed as:
1) Support-station volunteers are needed to man stations that provide food, drink, and assistance to hikers. If you are interested, let me know your preference in terms of time of day and amount of time you are willing to help. The more flexible you are the better. You do not have to stay for a station’s entire period of operation, although that is preferable for the first three stations (through Edwards Ferry). The stations are:
- Old Anglers, 5 to 7:30 am
- Seneca Creek, 7 to 11 am
- Edwards Ferry, 9 am to 2 pm
- Whites Ferry, 10 am to 3:30 pm
- Monocacy, 11 am to 6 pm
- Point of Rocks, 1 pm to 8 pm
- Brunswick, 2:30 to 10 pm
- At Harpers Ferry and Bolivar (5 pm to midnight), where volunteers are also needed to guide hikers along the towns’ route.
Contact me if you are interested or for more information.
2) Bike patrollers: I think we are all set for these. Thanks.
3) First aiders will be stationed at major support station and will provide first aid to hikers as needed. If you have first-aid or medical training, we’d love your help. Contact our First-Aid Team Director, Clif Castleman ([address removed]), if you are interested or for more information
If you are interested or have any questions, please let me know. If you know others who may be interested, please forward this message to them. If you have already agreed to help, thank you ever so much.

Year in and year out, volunteers are what makes the ODH the great event that it is!
