We are still looking for volunteers for the race on Saturday morning to help with registration.  You would need to be there around 6:45am and would be finished by 8ish, unless you want to stay around and help with other things (and, I’m sure we could use your help!).  If you do stay, you’ll be finished by 10:30 am.

Also, we still need some folks (a business perhaps) to set up and man a water station at the halfway point (around Huntington Junior College).  You would need to be set up by 8:00 am and will be done by around 9:30.
