Join us on the 4th of July and support Club Northwest's 2nd road race of the year!  Our proceeds go to support our athletes and our community events, such as the 49th Annual Summer All-Comers Track & Field Series at Shoreline Stadium which started May 31.

Volunteers will all receive a t-shirt and token for the beer garden.

Volunteers are needed for a variety of tasks -- all of which are on Tuesday, July 4th including:

Set-up 2:00 noon-6:00 p.m.

Be on-site at 2:00 pm to assist with start line, course, finish line, and post-event area set-up. Generally you will work under the direction of Pro-Motion staff and Bill Roe, CNW events manager.

Parking control 6:00 - 8:30 p.m.

Direct arriving automobiles to the nearest parking spot, closing off park roadways as parking in those areas fills up, and reminding people in parking lots in course areas that they will need to wait for the end of the run to leave if they wish to park there.

Registration 6:00-9:00 p.m.

Directing pre-registered runners to the directory of entrants to find their bib number, directing day-of-race entrants to the sign-up tables and then the correct lines for registration, providing packets with bibs and chips to each registered runner, giving runners their shirts, and monitoring the flow of runners to mitigate areas where long lines are developing.

Clothing Check 7 - 10:00 p.m.

Writing runner numbers on and distributing bags for gear, organizing them as they are turned in prior to the start, and providing bags back to the runners as soon as possible.

Beer Garden 6:00 p.m.-11:00 p.m.

Starting line 8:15-9:15 p.m.

Course monitor 8:30-9:45 p.m.

Direct participants, prevent any negative interaction between regular park users and participants, and get any errant vehicles off the course and out of the way of runners in a timely manner.

Finish line 8:30-10:00 p.m.

Clip chips from shoes, and direct people away from the finish through the corral to the post-event area.

Tear-down 10:00-11:00 p.m.

Stay after the race to help with clean up and tear-down of the course.
