Did You Volunteer in 2022?
All volunteers from 2022 should receive an email containing a link to their guaranteed entry for the 2023 race sometime this week. If you have not received your email by December 1, please contact Nita Lalla Roncone, our Volunteer Coordinator, at: firstname.lastname@example.org and let her know.
We hope that you (or your family and friends) will volunteer for 2023!
We will need over 2,000 volunteers (some on Friday, and with the 5K moving to Saturday, lots more on Saturday and Sunday) to conduct the 2023 event. No experience necessary, just a willingness to help out.
We appreciate our volunteers. Not only will you help put on the finest 10 mile race in the nation, you’ll be getting something extra for your efforts…
- 2023 Credit Union Cherry Blossom 10 Mile Short Sleeve Volunteer T-Shirt
- Volunteer Appreciation gift – to show our appreciation for you sticking with our team during this unusual year
- Transferable, Guaranteed Entry (at prevailing entry fee) to 2024 race.
So, if you don’t get into the race through the lottery this year, or if you just aren’t able to run this year, sign up to volunteer and obtain your guaranteed race entry for next year. Encourage your non-running spouse or friend(s) to volunteer. The 2024 guaranteed race entry they will receive for volunteering is transferable, so they can volunteer, and you can be guaranteed entry next year!
Volunteer Signup will open on December 1, 2022.
Volunteering and COVID-19
While we are optimistic that we will be able to conduct the events on April 1 and 2 without COVID-19 mitigations, we are deeply committed to the safety of our participants, volunteers and spectators. At the moment, COVID-19 mitigations have been lifted in Washington, DC, so we anticipate that the race will be conducted as usual. If things change, however, we are prepared to modify, including tightening, our procedures as necessary as race day approaches.
If you have any questions prior to signing up to volunteer, please contact Nita Roncone, Volunteer Coordinator at email@example.com.
