Cheer Team

Create a positive vibe around the event by providing lots of smiles, high fives and cheers to runners on the race course and around the start/finish line!

Cycle Squad

Ride your bike around the course, providing assistance and information as asked. Lead cyclist will ride just ahead of the first runners, notifying route marshals that runners are coming.
