Subject: Superior Fall Trail Race Volunteer Communication 1 2022
Greetings past and present Superior Fall Trail Race volunteers,
We are just over five weeks out from this year’s Superior Fall Trail Race. Founded in 1991 and run each year since (besides 2005 and 2020), this will be the race’s 30th running! This year’s race date(s) are Friday September 9 and Saturday September 10, 2022 - the race is always held the weekend after Labor Day Weekend.
You are receiving this email for one of the following reasons:
1.) You have already signed up to volunteer this year (thank you!) A list of those who have already signed up can be found HERE https://www.superiorfalltrailrace.com/volunteer-assignments/
2.) You have volunteered at the Superior Fall Trail Race in the past and we would love to have you back. If you can’t make it back to volunteer this year we hope it is because you are planning on running, crewing, spectating or just coming up to hang out to have a good time.
If you are interested in volunteering it helps me to stay organized if EVERYONE (even those that routinely forget to sign up) can go to the website and sign up to volunteer (it only takes a few minutes) HERE https://www.superiorfalltrailrace.com/volunteer-signup/ – Please provide any useful information that will help me in assigning you to your volunteer position; i.e. the days and times that you are available, what position you have worked in the past, names of anyone you would like to be assigned with, other preferences, etc. If you are interested in helping with equipment cleanup and storage on Monday September 12 at our home in Hastings, please indicate that as well.
I have been in touch with aid station captains separately and most do quite a bit of their own recruiting, so some of you may also be hearing directly from them.
We will continue gathering volunteer information another couple of weeks, then when we have just about everyone committed we will start making volunteer assignments – look for further communication at that time.
A note about lodging. Lodging and camping on the North Shore continues to be in very high demand. As always we will have some, but limited, communal type lodging for volunteers. If you have access to somewhere to stay, with a friend / group that is running, a favorite camping spot etc. those are great options to explore.
As always, should you have any questions, please feel free to contact me. We are looking forward to seeing many of you at Superior!
