As always, these races can’t be successful without volunteers like you! Race marshals and corner guards are essential — they keep racers and their fans on their respective sides of the barricades so everyone has a safe and exciting race day. Plus they get a front row view of all the action!

Volunteers get a flag and a reflective vest to use, and an event t-shirt that will be yours to keep as our thanks for your time and service. Meet with us at the volunteer tent/BID tent next to the grandstand to collect your equipment and get your assignment.
