AID STATIONS

One person from each Aid Station will pick up all of the equipment and bring it to the location. All Aid Station Volunteers should report to the Starting Line around 6:30 to get your shirts and any last minute updates. You will then head over to your location and start filling cups. You should arrive to your station at least 15 minutes before runners approach so you have time to pre-fill 100-150 cups.

You will hand out cups of water, Gatorade and in some locations, food. The cups should be filled 1/3-1/2 full. Hold the cup in the palm of your hand and hold it out for runners to grab as they run past you. Yell out “water” or “Gatorade” so the runners can decide what they want. If you have food at your station, let the runners know as well. Do not block the path of the runners but stay close enough that they do not have to jump over curbs to get to you. Runners will drop their cups on the ground when they are done, you should rake the cups up and place in trash bags. If you have an Aid Station Captain, they will pack up everything and return it to the finish line. We will have free drinks and appetizers for you at the Great Dane from 1-3 pm.

One person at each station will have a two-way radio. If you see someone who is struggling or injured, please radio for help and we will send someone to your location. If it is an emergency, call 911. There is a first aid kit for cuts, scrapes and minor injuries. You will have cooling towels and ice if someone is having trouble with the heat. James Ahern is the Aid Station Coordinator, you can call him at
(717) 903-9880 for non-emergency questions.
