VOLUNTEER

If you are not able to run at the Lets Move Elgin 5 K this year but would still like to be involved, why not become a Volunteer? We are looking for volunteers to help us out up to the day of the walk/run, and on the day itself.

Packet Stuffers

We need volunteers to help us stuff race packets full of information for our runners. No special skills are required, just a desire to help out!

Packet Pick-up Assistants

Runners may pick up their race packets on the day of the race. We need volunteers to help the runners find their race packets. Volunteers do not need any special skills, just the ability to sort through alphabetized race packets and a desire to provide good customer service.

We need help with a wide variety of tasks on race day. Jobs include assisting with last minute packet pick up, directing runners and the public, monitoring the safety and welfare of the runners, helping to set up barricades and banners, assisting runners with their timing chips, helping out at the finish line, and setting up and passing out water at the water stations.
