About

A professional or a really, really good photographer with a good camera is needed to take portraits of race finishers at the finish line. This will involve taking photos of smiling runners posing with their medals.

The finish line is on the summit of Mt. Baldy, at 10,064 feet. The photographer needs to be ready to jump into the 4WD transport vehicle at 5:30 a.m., to be driven to the highest point accessible by vehicle on the race route. The rest of the way to the summit is a 3-mile hike.

Being in good condition and experienced with strenuous hiking is needed. Good experience with high altitude is important.

The volunteer photographer will receive instruction from the race photographer.

The race ends at 11 am, but medals will be given till the timing company tears down the finishline, and pictures can be taken up to the point when the water station crew leaves so that you can hike back the 3 miles with them and catch the ride back to your car.

The Volunteer will receive the Run-to-the-Top t-shirt, a lunch certificate for the Mt. Baldy Lodge Restaurant (in the Village) for use any day, and transportation (including a ski lift ride down to the parking lot, if desired).
