Volunteers and Cheer Stations

The crowd makes the runners run and the volunteers make the race happen!!  Please join us for the fun on race day!

Volunteers:

If you are interested in volunteering for the race at packet pick-up, on the race course, at a water station, or on the race committee, please contact Lisa Morin at lisa.morin@maine.edu.

Cheer Station:

We are actively recruiting cheer squads for the course.  If you have a group interested in cheering on the runners, we will supply noisemakers and poster board for signs.

If you are interested in hosting a cheer station and you live on the race course, runners would appreciate the following:

  • Put your hose on spray mode and leave it out so they can run through the water.
  • Hand out ice (with plastic gloves on your hands)
  • Hand out paper cups with water
  • Hand out popsicles (not wrapped or with the ends cut off if they are flavor-ice)
  • Play loud, fun music on a stereo or instrument
  • Ring bells, use noisemakers, cheer and hold signs

If you want to be listed as an official race cheer station, e-mail or call Lauri Sidelko at sidelko@maine.edu or 207-581-1423 and we will provide you with sign materials, paper cups, noisemakers, etc….
