Subject: Superior Fall Trail Race 2014 Volunteer Email 1

Greetings All!
The 2014 Superior Fall Trail Races (100MI, 50MI and Moose Mountain Marathon) are two months away.  This years races will take place Friday September 5th and Saturday September 6th.  We have a record field registered and a lot of people already committed to volunteering!  If you are receiving this email it is because you 1.) You have volunteered in the past, 2.) You volunteered at Zumbro, Superior Spring Trail Races or the Afton Trail Run in 2014 or 3.) You have previously expressed interest in volunteering.Due to the logistics of putting on a point to point 100 mile trail race, we need nearly 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, this year we are looking for help the weekend prior loading the trucks and on the Sunday and 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!  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’, 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 HERE, 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!

Thank You,

John Storkamp
