We expect all volunteers to act in such a manner to help create a positive, safe, and fun atmosphere for all runners and spectators.  As race week approaches, your group captain will be provided with more detailed information about your role. If you have any questions or comments about our guidelines, or need any additional information, please contact Molly Portillo at [email protected].
