You do not have to be a runner to volunteer. We have families, seniors, groups and individuals that volunteer.
80 volunteers are needed for the 15th Annual North Country Run at “Big M” in the Manistee National Forest, August 23rd, 2014. We’ve reached the maximum number of registered runners, which means Wellston will see 500 participants from over 30 states and both the U.S. and Canada. The runners and their families are reserving rooms at the cabins and motels, and other area businesses will see an increase in customers over the entire weekend. More importantly, together we get a chance to show the participants how wonderful the area is for visiting.
Race Address: (3500 Udell Hills Road, Manistee MI)
Note: ALL Volunteer areas including aid stations you are able to drive right up to and be near your vehicle. Your vehicle is always insight and easily accessible if you need to bring additional items for your personal use.
It’s our goal to involve the community as we give back to the area and that can start with helping at the race as a volunteer. We’re in need of aid station volunteers to help hand out water, Gatorade, and food items that we provide to the runners. Traffic volunteers will assist participants when they arrive. Post-race food area volunteers and also runner packet pick-up volunteers are needed. Not only does volunteering help involve the community; it also encourages the runners to come back each year and we hope you’ll be a part of that. You’ll receive a certificate, shirt and tickets for the post-race food party. Individuals, families and groups can volunteer. If you’re part of a service organization, school or church, you can also receive a donation to your group.
As a volunteer, you’ll have the opportunity to help runners of all ages and abilities tackle a goal to finish a half-marathon, marathon or a 50 mile ultra-marathon. Finisher’s will earn a medal that is the largest in the United States for a half marathon, 50 mile ultra-marathon and the 3rd largest for a marathon.
The challenge is finding volunteers early enough to provide details about the race before race day. We hope you’ll volunteer by filling out the information below or by calling (888) 414-5799. Volunteers are key to the success of the race, so we ask that you please sign up today.
As a "Thank You" you'll receive for volunteering:
Post race meal ticket(s) to enjoy festivities after or during your volunteer time.
A race volunteer shirt (gender fitted for men and women).
Certificate thanking you or your organization from the race director.
If you are a runner, and remember you do not have to be a runner to volunteer. We have families, seniors, groups and individuals that volunteer, but if you do volunteer and want to participate in the race next year or give a gift to a friend we will give you half-off your race registration in 2014 if you work a half-shift, or a complimentary race entry into the following years race at no charge if you work a full day shift.
