Volunteer Opportunity: W&OD 5K

This comes from the desk of our tireless club treasurer, James Scarborough:

I would like to propose that WRC provide Arlington Safety and Health Foundation (Jay Wind‘s non-profit) race assistance on Sunday, 24 March, at the W&OD 5K. The race starts at 4pm and doesn’t conflict with Sunday morning. The registration starts at 2:30pm and I’m sure [Jay] can use a person or two there. There’s also a need for course sentries in several locations. Since it’s a double out and back 5K on the bike-path, nobody will out there that long.

Probably absolute maximum time commitment would be between 2:30 and 5:30 (and that’s helping to clean up). I’ll probably be running the race and probably helping with the packet pickup; last year I helped registration too, and I’ve helped at the finish line in the past as well.

So, if we can get four or five WRC people helping, that would be great. The starting point is practically next door to John Kendra, too, right in the middle of Falls Church.

Friends of the W&OD are a beneficiary, and the local Boy Scout troop usually provides volunteers.

If you would like to lend a hand on this coming Sunday, March 24th, please contact James at either treasurer@washrun.org or jbs1958 [at] comcast [dot] net. He will make sure that your talents are used either on the course or to help with other parts of the race.

And for those who are interested in racing, you can enter either online or by USPS mail.
