Volunteers are key to the success of the Tuna Run 200. We have 37 locations across the course that need at least 2 volunteers. The duties of these volunteers are discussed below, but we wanted to touch on the donation opportunity for charities/non-profits first.
DONATION OPPORTUNITY – $200 PER EXCHANGE ZONE
Only volunteers not provided by a team are eligible for a donation. This is a great opportunity to raise money for a charity or other non-profit. Volunteers for the race are needed to manage exchange zones along the course for the race. An exchange zone is a designated location where one runner from a team will hand off to the next runner (duties discussed below).
There must be at least 2 volunteers at each exchange zone. The Tuna Run 200 will donate $200 per exchange zone covered to the charity of choice of the volunteers. The donation is per exchange zone, so if you have more than 2 volunteers at a single zone, the donation will be $200. If you have 4 volunteers and split those to cover 2 exchange zones, the donation will be $400.
Once all of the exchange zones are covered, this opportunity will not be available. So, act quickly to guarantee your location and your donation.
The Tuna Run 200 will provide the donation after the relay and all volunteer duties have been completed. The donation will be paid to the organization and not the volunteers.
Any volunteer who is late or fails to show up for his/her duties will not only jeopardize the success of the relay, but also forfeit the donation that the Tuna Run 200 is making to the charity on their behalf.
The 200-mile course is divided into 36 segments called Legs. At the end of each leg is an Exchange Zone (there are 35 exchanges, plus the start and finish). Teams of runners run relay style along the course and exchange from one runner to the next at each exchange zone.
Volunteers are stationed at Exchange Zones to act as Race Officials, and to perform the following duties:
