Subject: Superior Fall Trail Race 2016 Volunteer Email 1
The 2016 Superior Fall Trail Races (100MI, 50MI and 26.2) are two months away. This years races will take place Friday September 9th and Saturday September 10th, 2016. We have a record field registered and a lot of people already committed to volunteering! If you are receiving this email it is because 1.) You have volunteered in the past, 2.) You have volunteered at other RSR races or 3.) You have previously expressed interest in volunteering – please forgive us if you have already signed up to volunteer and are still receiving this email.
Due to the logistics of putting on a point to point 100 mile trail race, we need about 200 volunteers to make this event happen, not just on the race days (Friday and Saturday) but also on Thursday for trail marking and the pre-race meeting – also, we are looking for help on the Monday after for post-race cleanup at our headquarters (read; garage and back-yard!) in the Twin Cities.
We ask that anyone who would like to volunteer at this years race please signup online – by doing so, you really help us to manage the amount of information we have to manually enter and you help keep us organized – so thank you in advance! http://www.superiorfalltrailrace.com/volunteer-signup/ If you are planning on volunteering, it would be very helpful to us if you could register as soon as possible so we can see what spots we still have to fill – the online signup process should only take about 5 minutes! After signing up, your name will show up on the ‘Volunteer List’ http://www.superiorfalltrailrace.com/volunteer-assignments/, this is how you can confirm you are signed up, as the weeks progress we will start making the volunteer assignments and your name will then show up with your assignment(s) next to it.
Additionally, be sure to review all of the race information on the website and under the volunteer section, this will help you be the best resource possible for the runners and for your fellow volunteers!
As always should you have any questions, please feel free to contact me. If you cannot make it or are already signed up to run the race, no need to respond, you can disregard this message.
We are looking forward to spending another awesome weekend with all of you putting on one of the biggest, baddest and most historic 100 mile trail races in the country!
