LABOR DAY WEEKEND: MADISON WI
All Course Marshals will report to Rebecca at the Volunteer Check-In Tent near the Start/Finish Line of the marathon at 6:40 am. You will pick up your volunteer shirt, safety vest and traffic flag. After you receive these items, you should go to your post listed below.
The Volunteer Coordinator is Rebecca. You can reach her at (608) 697-8111
Course Marshals will be located at various intersections on the course that need additional support to keep runners pointed in the right direction and to make vehicles aware of runners. Runners do not stop at stop signs so it is important that the Course Marshals use their safety flags to warn drivers to wait until the runners have passed before proceeding. If you need a bathroom break, you should call Rebecca and she will send someone to fill your spot while you are gone. All Course Marshals are located less than 3/4 mile from the Start/Finish area.
Runners will approach you and pass you as they make their way around the lake. You should see the first runners around the times listed below. This is going to be extremely busy and crowded so be ready for a rush of 1000 runners (near the start but spread out near the end). You will then see the relay teams shortly after the first wave of runners. After 10:30am, you will get sporadic full marathon runners on their second lap. This will continue until 12:45pm.
BRING BUG SPRAY AND SPF IF YOU THINK YOU MAY NEED IT. YOU MAY ALSO BRING A LAWN CHAIR SO YOU CAN SIT WHEN IT’S SLOW.
