Greater Midland is looking for volunteers for its upcoming racing season.

Greater Midland Races offers many volunteer opportunities including; Spirit Stations, Registration Team, Racetrack Crew, Water/Rescue Stations, Kids Activity Controllers and more.

Between Dow RunWalk, Tri-Kids-Try, Run the River and the Loons Pennant Race, volunteers can choose to help out in just one race or all four.

“My family and I love volunteering at TKT (Tri-Kids-Try) because seeing the kids achieve their goals and cross the finish line fills us with joy,” said Kevin Heye of Greater Midland.

Any help is greatly appreciated, as Race Day would not be possible without the help of volunteers, according to Greater Midland Marketing and Design Specialist Cassie Nealis in a recent press release.

If you are looking to volunteer, register on the Greater Midland website with a search for ‘running volunteer’.

Upon registration, volunteers will receive regular communication/training prior to race day and a crew t-shirt.
