Race Day - Friday Evening, July 19

The Oberun 5K Ypsilanti is BACK!!! Thank you for signing up to volunteer!

Race week FUN and helping out!

Volunteers must be 18 or older, unless prior approval has been given by the Race Director. 

Thursday Registration and Packet Pick Up: Work Thursday registration and hand out packets at Fleet Feet Ann Arbor West.

Friday Set Up/ Floater: Help get everything race ready, and then you'll be re-assigned! Everybody loves a mystery. Until it's time to tear it all down! 

Friday Registration/Finish Line/Float: Work Friday registration, hand out shirts and packets & then get reassigned to the finish line & clean up crew! 

Friday Finish Line & Clean Up Crew: Hand out awards, water and maintain order around the finish line area. And then pack up the whole thing and ship it out!

Friday Food/Host/Clean Up Crew: Help out with food truck lines and the post-race party. Then, after all the people go home, help load the trucks!

Friday Course Volunteer: We will assign you a spot along the course to cheer the runners on and to keep them moving in the right, or left, direction! Yuk. Yuk. Yuk. Costume not required, but why wouldn't you??? 

Capture Captain: Help us by capturing the moments of joy and race day excitement. We are looking for someone who is very comfortable with technology and using a phone or camera to produce quality photographs. Mix and mingle with race participants to capture all of the fun! You must bring your own camera or phone.

Friday Zero Waste Team: Save the world one recyclable item at a time! Help us meet our goal to reduce, reuse and recycle! 

Friday Aid Station: Set up water, hand out water, clean up and bring supplies back to the truck.

Friday Park & Pour: Enjoy a day in the fields directing cars to park, then check out and join us off duty in the beer garden! Get your work done early so you can stay and play!

Friday Park & Course: Join the parking crew for second shift, then get reassigned to a course marshal position!

Friday Clean Up Crew: Check in at 7:30 p.m. to help pack up and send the whole thing home. Stick around pitching in until the field is clean, the vehicles are packed and the last Oberon can is bagged up! (Great shift for race participants who'd also like to help out!)

Pick a Job!

We'd love for you to work more than one shift, BUT please do not double book yourself! For example, you can't work the course AND aid station because the times overlap! Also, we are super excited you are willing to help out, but please do not select a job if you are not able to cover the entire shift. Cheers!
