Race Day Setup Crew
This is intense and fun. There is nothing like being up and working it at 4:00am when the rest of the world is still in restful anticipation for the big day! These volunteers will join one of several different set-up crews that will set up the course and “make it happen”!! You will either be on a coning crew (one of four), or a water stop setup crew (one of two). There is a lot to do before the gun fires at 7:30am, but you will be working with an experienced crew chief leading the way!
For some reason – these pre-dawn volunteer crews are some of the most highly energized of all, perhaps it is the anticipation of what lies ahead in the day or perhaps it is the surreal feeling of driving through the streets of Columbus in the darkness knowing that you are putting down a course that will soon be followed by thousands and thousands of runners … and you will be done in time for breakfast!
Warning – you may find yourself asking to stay on with the crew after your shift has ended at 8:00am … just saying!
