Subject: Afton Trail Run Volunteer Email 1 2021
Hey Awesome Humans,
You are receiving this email because you have signed up to volunteer for this year’s Afton Trail Run. So first off, thank you SO MUCH for your willingness to help. While this year’s race (our 27th annual) will be different from years past, it is still going to be a great time!
In keeping with the theme of this past year-and-a-half, with everything generally being backwards, disjointed, with added challenges etc., my first email to volunteers is coming out quite a bit later than it normally would, thank you for your patience. It looks like we are just about at ‘critical mass’ / have the volunteers we need to pull off this year’s race. That said we are just waiting for some final commitments and would like to clarify some availability with folks seeing as though things are happening on different days than normal. If you could, please have a look HERE https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1zasBUyMkGQ4t4DFFrcZ7W3e4NKDiZAHrrV8VzpKKX2o/edit?usp=sharing – scroll down to find your name and please let me know if your availability is any different than what you previously indicated. If any of you have a camera and consider yourselves above average on the photography front, please let me know as it looks like we could be short on photogs this year.
Generally, the event will unfold like this: We will set up the start / finish area and aid stations starting at Noon on Thursday July 1 (this will take about 4 or 5 hours)… then we will race on Friday July 2 and Saturday July 3! Both days will roughly go down like THIS https://www.aftontrailrun.com/schedule-of-events/
If you have someone planning to join you and you do not see their name on the list HERE https://www.aftontrailrun.com/volunteer-assignments/ , please ask them to sign up HERE https://www.aftontrailrun.com/volunteer-signup/ – thank you.
I am shooting to have volunteer assignments done and out to you by early next week (week of June 21) – if in the meantime you have any questions or concerns, please let me know!
