Be More Than Just IN the Race - Volunteer now!    

Sometimes a race against the clock becomes a race against time. Race participants often get injured, distressed or require medical attention. Fortunately, Race Guards are there! Race Guards are dedicated, volunteer first responders who join the race and keep an eye out for athletes who need help.
