Due to safety issues we have decided all volunteers will be given a safety vest with “Volunteer” on the front and back to wear instead of a providing a Volunteer t-shirt. In most cases you wear a jacket or coat so the t-shirts weren’t even seen so again it is a safety issue. Please note that you are to turn the vests back in after the event. If you are at a water stop you can leave it in designated container. If you are out on one of the courses you can leave it at the nearest water stop. Thank you for your continued support!
