It keeps you in the “thick of it”
I’ve volunteered at two races here in Halifax so far. One was the Shoppers Drug Mart Run for Women: I was a Course Marshal. The other: Info Booth Host at the Scotiabank Blue Nose Marathon (Youth Run and Race Day).
Volunteering is awesome. Being able to volunteer at an event you usually run – super awesome.
I was able to still feel that little buzz on race day, even though I wasn’t running. The energy is unforgettable.
Volunteering also gives you a whole new appreciation for what is involved for any size race.
So if you haven’t volunteered yet, I highly recommend it. Especially if you’re injured 😉
