Corporate Challenge Volunteering

We'll be volunteering at a water station for the Corporate Challenge again this year.  The race is in Central Park and we usually are near Engineers Gate, although the location may change this year.  

This year we are also using this event to celebrate National Running Day. More details will follow but we'll likely be getting shirts and looking to add some additional excitement to the water station to celebrate.

This is also one of the volunteer opportunities for anyone who wants a team spot to the NYC Marathon.  For a list of the criteria to get a spot, see here:

We have to arrive by 5:00 and expect to volunteer until around 8:00 depending on how long it takes to clean up afterward.  We'll pick a bar for after volunteering.

Please let us know if you have any questions.

    Guys! This also happens to be my birthday, so if people are interested I'll probably be looking to find a bar (ideally one showing the hockey game...) after the race!

    Rose, we'll actually have National Running Day shirts for you to wear but feel free to wear Whippet gear too. I'll try and remember to bring the flag I have.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
