Volunteer FAQs

What happens after I sign up online?

You will receive a confirmation email after you sign up.


What if I can no longer volunteer?

Please email dcaldwell@pohfoundation.org  as soon as possible to let our volunteer coordinator know, so we can ensure your responsibilities will be re-assigned to another volunteer.


What if I cannot volunteer the whole shift?

Once you sign up, we count on you for the full shift and cannot replace you if you leave early. At times, it may appear your area is over-staffed, but please be aware that all shifts are coordinated based on anticipated crowds. We count on each volunteer for help at the busy end of the shift. Please do not leave your post.

May I bring a friend?

Yes! We can always use extra help! Please be sure to have them register online to secure a volunteer position and Volunteer T-shirt.


How should I dress?

We recommend all volunteers wear comfortable clothes and shoes. Please dress in layers to compensate for sunshine to rain and cool to warmer temperatures throughout the day. All race day volunteer jobs will take place outside and this event happens rain or shine.


What should I bring with me?

Clothing appropriate to the weather. For all shifts, we suggest you bring your own food, snacks and refreshments as you feel you will need or want for your shift.  There is no storage available, so you will have to carry any items you bring with you. Most areas will have a place to set down your belongings, but it will not be secure.


Can children volunteer?

The minimum age to volunteer is 8 years old. The official age for an unaccompanied child to volunteer is 16. There must be one adult for every two children under 15 years old.  We want to ensure the safety of all our volunteers and athletes. Please direct any questions regarding children to the volunteer coordinator a dcaldwell@pohfouncation.org
