All Aid Station and Relay Exchange Volunteers will report directly to the location where you are volunteering at the time listed below. If you have not picked up your volunteer shirt, you should pick it up at the Marathon Expo from noon to 7pm on Friday, September 1st at the Monona Community Recreation Center - 1011 Nichols Rd Monona, WI 53716. A race staff will drive around the course at the start of the marathon and try to get a shirt to you if you are not able to get to the Expo on Friday. If a Team Captain is not at your location when you arrive, just wait there and a race staff will bring all of your supplies to you between 7:35 and 8 am.
Your Volunteer Coordinator is Eric. You can call him (920) 210-8843 if you have any questions.
Aid Station Volunteers will hand out cups of water, Gatorade and in some locations, bananas, crackers and bagels. The cups should be filled 1/3 - 1/2 full. Hold the cup in the palm of your hand and hold it out for runners to grab as they run past you. Yell out "water" or "Gatorade" so the runners can decide what they want. If you have food at your station, let the runners know as well. Do not block the path of the runners but stay close enough that they do not have to jump over curbs to get to you. Runners will drop their cups on the ground when they are done, you should rake the cups up and place in trash bags.
Relay Exchange Volunteers will look for the runners with the bright red or bright green race bibs. When you see them, use the megaphone to announce the number on their bibs. This will allow their teammates to know that their exchange partner has arrived. There will be a table with bottled water and food, this is not for the other runners, just the relay runners. Keep the table stocked and pick up any trash they leave behind. One person should guide the relay runners into the exchange area, one should announce numbers and one should stock the table.
