      Just in from Thys Wind - our contact from Endurance Magazine - we will provide bike support for the 1,000 runners for the 4 miler. This also starts @ 7:30am, but from the Bell Tower on South Road vs. the Stadium. Check for my "email to attendees" for meeting up @ 6:30. Sounds like brunch is in order rather than lunch!

      I'm not super familiar, but last year parked in the lots for Smith Center then met with a few of the sweepers at the entrance on that side of Kenan. My number is[masked]-9284. Give yourself plenty of time if you're driving in. An hour minimum before start which is 7:30.

    Still looking for a couple more volunteers. We have the Trail Ambassador Jersey's in hand. They should be great for making all of you look official.

    I have also done this the past couple of years. One suggestion, it would be nice if we where wearing something to help identify us as course workers. I found a lot of runners had no idea what we where doing riding around them. Not every runners hears or pays attention to announcements.

      Just ordered a pile of Trail Ambassador jersey's for just this type of thing. Hopefully they will get here in time.

    Started out a little rocky last year, but ended up having a truly awesome experience.

      Yes. A word of caution for this years' volunteers, parking and traffic will suck. Best bet is to park somewhere out of the way and ride over. Or get there real early.

    Jonathon W. is leading the pack

    I've done this the past two years... great time. Any chance they're looking for something other than sweep this time? There has always been multiple area's where we can help ride, just didn't know if those were all taken?

      It likely depends on how many volunteers sign up. The lead rider and the sweep positions are the most important. More volunteers spaced throughout the runners would be ideal.
