Upcoming Needs:

 

2020 DCRR JFK 20K and MLK 5K

January 18, 2020 at 8:00am at Carderock Recreation Area, Potomac, Md.

 

We are always in need of volunteers to ensure that our races are successful.  We will need Volunteers at Carderock, MD, starting at 8:00 am, all the way through 1:00 pm on Saturday, January 18th. Once you register you will receive further instructions about your volunteer role. Please sign up here, if you (or a family member who is accompanying you to the race) can assist. For questions, email the race director at races@dcroadrunners.org.

 

2020 DCRRC Langley 8K

February 8, 2020 at 9:00am at Langley Fork Park,  McLean, VA  

 

The Langley 8K is an out-and back route with several twists and turns, because of this the club needs a lot of volunteers to help keep everyone on course (seriously, the more volunteers, the less chance participants end up accidentally running a 10k.) We also need volunteers to help with race day registration and check-in. Sleep in a bit and then rollout of bed and volunteer at the Langley 8k. Please sign up here, if you (or a family member who is accompanying you to the race) can assist. Volunteering during the race

fulfills the Snowball Series requirement.

We are looking for club members interested in gaining experience co-directing club races or becoming race directors. If interested, please contact Ben.

 

 

Rock'n'Roll Marathon Water Station

DCRRC will again support the Rock'n'Roll Marathon by staffing a water stop on Saturday, March 28. We’ll be at Water Stations #9 and #11 (mile 16.5 & 19.8, same spot passed twice) at Nicholson St. SE, between Anacostia Dr. and Fairlawn Ave. This is an entry into Anacostia Park, right by the John Phillip Sousa Bridge (Pennsylvania Ave.).

Here’s how to sign up: 1) Click here. 2) Enter the secret password “WS9”. 3) Enter your personal information. Easy, right? (We know it says "Friday, March 27"; we're trying to get that fixed.)

Email Ted Cochrane fo'mo'info or if you have questions. Volunteering counts for Snowball Series credit!

 

Cherry Blossom Volunteer Opportunity

DC Road Runners will be volunteering at this year’s Cherry Blossom 10 Mile Race by helping at packet pickup (sorry, sold out) and expo support (the people stationed around the Expo guiding people to the right place - packets, t-shirts, the speakers clinics, etc.) on Friday, April 3, from 5:00 PM until 8:30 PM. Volunteering gets you a transferable guaranteed entry into the 2021 race. (It will be at the regular price, but you'll bypass the lottery.) You also get a long-sleeved shirt, and there’s a Volunteer Appreciation Party immediately after our shift ... free beer, pizza and other goodies! Volunteering counts for Snowball Series credit!

Click here to sgn up at the CB10 volunteer website, using the the password “DCRR” that takes you directly to our shift. Fill in your personal information, choose "DC Road Runners" from the group pull-down menu, and you’re all set.

 

Constant Needs:

We are always looking for Saturday Long Run refreshment volunteers. If you plan to attend SLR for at least 2 consecutive weeks, and haven't volunteered in a while (or at all), please consider helping to support the group (and yourself)! This is a fairly easy job, all you have to do is bring gatorade, water, and cups to SLR on Saturday morning, and the club will reimburse the expenses (think of all the rewards points you can get!)  Please (read: please, please, pretty please) check the SLR Page for dates needed, and e-mail slr@dcroadrunners.org if you are able to help out!
