We NEED Volunteers!

As with any race we are asking for friends and family of the racers, and anyone else interested in a fun weekend in the mountains to volunteer their services to help our race weekend run more smoothly. It is always nice to see a friendly face giving out the drinks after 10 miles of a hilly half marathon! All volunteers will have free food for their efforts. Anyone interested, please contact Liz at,, or 304.567.2632
