Believe it or not, Spring has sprung (just ignore that snow on your porch) and Summer is close.  This can only mean one thing… The running season in beautiful Lake Tahoe is about to kick-off and the premiere event on the calendar is THE 56th  RUNNING OF THE DECELLE MEMORIAL LAKE TAHOE RELAY on Saturday, June 13, 2019. To ensure this year’s event continues its successful history, we need one secret ingredient – YOU – as a volunteer!

Events of this magnitude would NOT succeed without the volunteer run team, and you have historically been a part of our group.

We need fun, energetic, committed folks like you to join our volunteer run team!

Available Volunteer Run Positions:

Registration (3 people)

If you enjoy greeting folks – 2 – 8 pm, Friday, June 12 @ Revive Coffee (race headquarters and start/finish)

Timing (20 people)

Want to be part of the day’s action and be outside? Then this is definitely your gig. You’ll work in groups of 3 or 4 at the six relay transition locations around the lake for two hour shifts, beginning at 7:30 am and ending at 6 pm. (Contact me for specifics)

Parking (4 people)

On the day of the race, parking will be a premium. We need your help to make sure that the cars coming from the race can get in! @Tahoe Beach Retreat from 3 – 6 pm.

Course Monitors (3 people)

Are you a nut for motor sports? Do you own a motorcycle? In this role your job is to monitor the course during the race on a motorcycle and make sure people stay safe and enjoy their day.

Traffic Control (6 people)

If you’re an early bird, this is perfect for you. At the start of the race, we need people to control traffic @ Tahoe Beach Retreat from 6:30 – 7:30 am as people leave.

And of course for all that work you’re doing besides our eternal debt of gratitude, we’ll also provide food, snacks, drinks, and a t-shirt!
