Mother's Day 5k – Volunteer Information
When- Sunday, May 8, 2022, from 6:45 am – 10:30 am
Where- McKinley Marina/Veterans Park- 1750 N. Lincoln Memorial Dr, Milwaukee, WI
Who- Upon arrival volunteers are to meet an All Community Events staff underneath the red registration tents and sign in on the volunteer sign-in sheet. On the volunteer sign-in sheet, please put WOCA under the "Affiliate/Organization" section. After you sign in you will be assigned your volunteer tasks.
Registration assistant – Volunteers will help with the process of participants checking in. They will check if the participant is registered by last name and if so then give them their race materials. Some volunteers will also assist with the process of new participants signing up the day of the race.
Post-race gear exchange/food – Once registration is closed the tents will be used for food primarily. Volunteers will help organize the food and monitor it while participants are finishing. Shirt exchanging will also be going on. Participants will be asking to exchange their shirts for a different size and at this time it is okay as long as they didn’t run in it.
Course Marshal – Course marshals will be placed on the course (in pairs of two minimum) and help direct the participants so they run the correct way. Here we ask the volunteers to be as enthusiastic as possible encouraging the runners to have a good time.
Water Station – Volunteers assigned to the water station will fill up cups of water and help distribute them to passing participants.
*Volunteers will more than likely work more than one job throughout the event. Also, there will be more jobs than listed above. Those are the most typical.
