Help runners and walkers as they gauge their training progression in this three-event series designed to prepare participants for the OneAmerica 500 Festival Mini-Marathon and 500 Festival 5K. This event starts and finishes at Bankers Life Fieldhouse.
Ask-Me/Results - Help participants with questions on Race Day. We will provide you with the tools to be able to answer all questions beforehand. Outgoing personalities are a must for this position! After the race has started, you’ll transition into helping our results team.
Course Marshal - Want to be a part of the action and actually see runners and walkers pass by you? Then provide crowd support and directional assistance along the course to the hundreds of runners and walkers gearing up for the big event!
Directional Assistance/Finish Line - Help participants, spectators, and other volunteers figure out where they need to be! It is a busy morning with lots of people arriving in a short amount of time; you’ll help alleviate confusion and ensure people are where they need to be in a timely manner. After the event starts, move to the finish area to either help pass out water, hand out food, or finisher medals as the thirsty and hungry participants cross the finish line.
Start/Finish Areas - Work at the pre-registration table handing out participants’ bibs, help guide participants in and out of check-in and answer questions before they take off on their timed run or walk. After the event starts, move to the finish area to either help pass out water, hand out food, or finisher medals as the thirsty and hungry participants cross the finish line.
T-Shirt Distribution - Pass out t-shirts to participants who will be completing all 3 Miler Series races.
