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 finish line, 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 keep social distancing as much as possible.
The Volunteer will receive the Run-to-the-Top t-shirt and transportation (including a ski lift ride down to the parking lot, if desired).
To cooperate with other agencies to promote the quality of land use management in this area.
To improve and maintain the dialogue between the various groups and associations and the members thereof.
To approach and become involved with, resolving if possible, the problems too large for individuals or individual organizations to resolve.
San Antonio Canyon Town Hall, a nonprofit 501(c)(4), is preparing for its 50th annual Labor Day fundraiser, the Mt. Baldy Run-to-the-Top (RTTT), which will be held on September 7, 2015. This is one of California's most popular mountain trail runs, a very challenging 7-mile+ trail run with ~4,000′ of elevation gain. Beginning at ~6,000′ elevation, the final mile, the steepest, is above timberline. The finish is at the summit of beautiful Mt. San Antonio (Mt. Baldy) at 10,064′.
Town Hall is excited to reach this 50 th milestone. We’re planning a celebration at the Ski Lifts, complete with live bands, for all runners, volunteers, sponsors, and spectators. And, for the very first time, we’re offering a 5k opportunity that will follow the initial RTTT course and then end at the Ski Lifts, at 7,800′.
The funding that the RTTT provides Town Hall allows us to continue to make annual donations to the Mt. Baldy Fire Department and West Valley Search & Rescue; and to maintain an emergency fund for disaster relief. Last August, Mt. Baldy suffered a catastrophic storm. Town Hall was in the position to respond to the needs of residents and the volunteer repair and clean-up crews. We continue to fund safety projects for the local community and tens of thousands of visitors who hike, bike, and play in the local wilderness.
