The 13th Running of the Chicago Half Marathon & 5K takes place on Sunday, September 13, 2009 and they are in need of volunteers.
YOU MUST SIGN UP TO BE A VOLUNTEER ON THE FOLLOWING WEBSITE. USE THE SCROLL DOWN MENU TO LOCATE OUR GROUP AND THE PASSWORD IS: Meetup. AGAIN, YOU MUST REGISTER ON THEIR SITE. http://www.doitsports... password: meetup
We need to be at the aid station from 5AM - 10:30AM, if you come later, that's fine as well. We should expect the first runner at this station at 7:54AM.
Our group will be helping at one of the aid stations. I had to promise that at least 11 group members would be able to volunteer at the station for this race. We will be handing out water and giving support to the runners. They provide us with all the goods, but we need to bring our own rakes, shovels or brooms to help with the cleanup of our station after wards. I need to finalize some paperwork, but when the paperwork is all done we will have our own online log, so the race director can make sure we have the number of volunteers that were agreed upon. THIS IS A GREAT WAY TO GIVE BACK TO OUR RUNNING COMMUNITY AND I HOPE MANY OF YOU WILL BE ABLE TO JOIN ME
