Volunteers/Run for Free

Volunteers are essential to the success of the race! We need volunteers to staff the aid stations, finish line, for pre-race check-in and for sweeping the course. In exchange for a full days worth of volunteering you can earn a credit for a free entry to a BTRS race, the Bellingham Trail Marathon or next year's Cle Elum Ridge 25k/50k. Or you can transfer your credit to a running friend or family member so they can run this year's Cle Elum Ridge race for free. Volunteers will also get to join in on the post race festivities and post race meal!

If you have a friend/family/poor sucker you'd like to offer up for volunteering (or yourself), please email me with your name, email address to reach you at, phone number, and availability to volunteer (any time restraints).  If you have volunteered before and would like to do a similar job, please include that info.  Or if you prefer a certain type of work. All jobs are easily explained and are often done by newbies.  Email volunteer@destinationtrailrun.com for more info or to sign up as a volunteer. Thanks!

Runner check-in/registration before the race
Crossing guard/course marshal
Aid station volunteer/captain
Finish line timing (help put runner's time on spreadsheet)
Post race food prep and serving
