Hello Seattle Running Club!
Curious about ultramarathons?
Want to give back to trails and your running community?
Injured and wish you could run, but want to be a part of the event anyway?
This weekend is a big race, the White River 50 mile endurance run. It’s on Saturday, July 28 near Crystal Mountain. See the event webpage for details. This events benefits the club.
Camp Sheppard is being transitioned from a Club Northwest Aid Station to a Seattle Running Club Aid Station.
It’s the first one at 3.9 miles so runners get a lasting impression all day long on the great service we provide.
Runners generally pass through the aid station between 6:15am – 7:30am. You’ll need to be there a little bit early to set up and a little bit longer to break down the station. Then you’re pretty much done for the day and can hang out at the start/finish area, mingle with all the runners, volunteer for other positions :).
There is one other position – an additional sweeper for the 2nd half of the course. A nice 25 mile scenic run with just 1 big climb. 2nd half sweep goes from 1pm-7:30pm.
Volunteers receive a t-shirt, parking day pass, and BBQ ticket for after the race.
Come out and represent the club, get your volunteering in, and enjoy a great day watching great performances. And don’t forget, White River 50 supports the Seattle Running Club with a sizable donation each year. We have to earn that contribution!
