Volunteer Requirements and Optional Fees
Every 12 person team must provide two (2) Volunteers who are 16 years of age or older; 6 person teams are required to provide one (1) volunteer. All volunteers must be physically capable to perform the assigned duties. Volunteer shifts will last between 6 and 8 hours on average. We will provide a map of the course with opportunities to volunteer. Volunteers will be responsible for choosing a location and signing up for the shift; sign-ups will be on a first come, first served basis, so be sure to register your volunteers as soon as you can so that they are on our email list. We expect volunteer shift signups to open in February.
Optional Rent A Volunteer Program
You may opt to Rent A Volunteer from a local charity. We will be recruiting local groups to cover shifts. (If you know of a non-profit in the race area that might be interested in volunteer, please email sydney @ smokymountainrelay.com). You may choose this option when you register, or you may request this option after you have signed up. But you must request this option no later than May 1 to allow us time to recruit the additional volunteers. Please note that changing your status after March 15 will mean that you will be paying an additional $30 per volunteer. Please email sydney at thewildroguerelay.com to change your volunteer status to Rent A Volunteer if you did not indicate this choice at registration and wish to rent volunteers.
The minimum donation for one (1) volunteer working a 6 to 8 hour shift is $120; two is $240. This is an excellent opportunity for your team to make a charitable contribution! Payment for these volunteers is separate from registration.
The donation amount for the Rent A Volunteer program is as follows (The amount requested to select and hire volunteers goes up as the event date draws near as it is much more difficult to find and coordinate additional charity volunteers closer to the event date):
Donation made by March 15: $120 per volunteer
After March 15: $150 per volunteer
Please make your checks out to “Sourwood Running” and include your team name on the memo line. Mail your Rent A Volunteer payments to:
The Wild Rogue Relay
2812 Old Stage Rd
Central Point, OR 97502
Changing from Providing Volunteers to Renting Volunteers
To change your volunteer status from “provide your own volunteers” to “hire a volunteer program” or visa versa, team captains must sydney @ smokymountainrelay.com with the request.
