Interested in Volunteering?
We need over 400 volunteers to conduct the 2013 Rockville Rotary Twilight Runfest – most of them on the evening of the race, but we also have several jobs that need to be done at other times. No experience is necessary, just a willingness to help out. Not only will you be helping a good cause – our charity beneficiaries and, of course, the runners – you’ll also have a good time. Just ask anyone who has volunteered before.
By volunteering, you can help conduct one of the most popular races in the region – and certainly the most popular of the summer. You will have an interesting, fun and important job. And you’ll meet and work with a great group of people, often fellow members of the Montgomery County Road Runners Club – a fun bunch if there ever was one! We appreciate our volunteers – and it shows. Not only will you help put on one of the finest races in the region, you’ll be getting something extra for your efforts…
- The special Twilighter Volunteer T-Shirt
- Food before the race — yep, we feed you!
- Training for your job
- And, did we mention, a great time!
Before you sign up …Prerequisites and additional information for volunteers.
So, if you aren’t running this year — or if you have friends or family who can help out, sign up now. You’ll be glad you did.
If you’d like some additional information, read on; if you’re ready to sign up now, just go right to our online form.
Additional Information for Volunteers
Here are a few additional things you should know before you sign up to volunteer:
Don’t volunteer if you aren’t sure you will be able to be there. No-shows really cause great difficulties and will not be accepted in future years.
Volunteers for race night (Saturday night) will be given preference of assignments — that’s when we need the most people.
Volunteers must be at least 14 years old. Parents should not necessarily expect that children will be assigned to the same location.
You must be able to report on time and remain on the job until relieved.
About one week before the race you will receive a job assignment, reporting instructions, and other information. You will need to call your team chief to confirm that you will received the assignment and that you will be there.
How to Sign Up
OK, so you’re ready to do it — great! Basically, all you need to do is fill out the needed information on the Volunteer Signup Form and get the form to us. There are several easy ways to do this:
About one week before the race you will receive a job assignment, reporting instructions, and other information. You will need to call your team chief to confirm that you will received the assignment and that you will be there. Didn’t Get It? – If you haven’t received your assignment by July 14, call or e-mail the volunteer coordinator – firstname.lastname@example.org.
