Become a Cheese Days Chaser!

Sign up to volunteer for the 2016 Cheese Days Chase.  We are in need of course marshals and water stop volunteers.  Email if you are interested in volunteering.

Course Marshals
You will function as a traffic cop for the participants in the run/walk on Saturday morning (race day). You are the eyes and ears of the race and your role is vital. We are asking you to bring a cell phone (911) to report any injury or related problem should an accident occur. You will be assigned a specific location and should report to your assigned area by 8:45 am on race day.  Your shift will end at approximately 10:30 am or when the last runner passes which will be followed by a bicyclist.

Water Stops
On Saturday morning (race day), you should report your assigned water stop by 8:45 am. Be prepared to fill a lot of cups! Your shift is over at approximately 10:30 am or when the last runner passes which will be followed by a bicyclist.
