No time like the present… while you’re still thinking of how much fun you had volunteering this year, why not sign up for next year? We’ll send you a reminder early in 2020 so you can mark your calendar. Sign up here
We’ve copied the PDF volunteer instructions onto web pages on this volunteer sign up site, to make it easier to refer to them from a mobile phone. Also there are some expanded sections (e.g. aid station captains).
Start at the Volunteer Instructions page.
Updated instructions for 2019 have been posted at https://foolsrun.com/volunteer.htm – please have a look and check back for more updates. There are some changes this year in the areas of aid stations, gear check and pickup, and volunteer HQ.
This year’s crew shirts will be MAROON in colour, and come in both women’s and men’s styles! The women’s are Gildan semi-fitted which are only 3/4″ smaller chest width per size than the unisex version, but have shaping. Here’s what they will look like:
We have to order them in early March before most volunteers have signed up, so the size distribution is a bit of a guessing game, but we’ve ordered more larger sizes than small, because it’s better to have a slightly too big shirt than too small!
We’ll be having a Volunteer Orientation Party on Tuesday, April 2nd, 5-7pm upstairs at The 101 Brewhouse & Distillery, located on Gibsons Way beside BMO Bank of Montreal. Don’t miss it!
This is a great opportunity to get details about your volunteer position(s), pick up your t-shirt and lanyard, meet your area captain, ask questions, and get a chance to win a draw prize! Also, all food and drink purchases will be 10% off!
Attendance isn’t mandatory but consider it as close to mandatory as possible… in other words we very strongly encourage you to be there if possible, even if you can only drop by for a little while. Underage volunteers are welcome.
Thank you again for volunteering!
Teresa Nightingale, Race Co-director
