Course Marshals

Course Marshals play an integral role on race day by ensuring pedestrian safety at designated crossing areas on the course.  The race cannot occur without them! To volunteer to be a course marshal, click on the link below.  Please note that you must be 18 years of age to be a course marshal, but other volunteer opportunities are available for high school students.  If you have questions about being a course marshal, please email Marty Anderson.


Check-In and Information Table

Come help us register and check-in on Friday! Volunteers are needed to help check-in other volunteers, provide course marshal information, register Family Bike Parade participants, and more. For more information, please contact Jill Harris


Host Housing

Interested in getting to know some of the racers and more about pro/am cycling? House some or all members of a race team! Hosts provide sleeping space, use of a bathroom, a place to lock up bikes and refrigerator space. Providing food is not required but a host family may offer to share meals or give the riders full use of the kitchen.
