Perogy XC Volunteers Needed – All the Perogies You Can Eat

May 21, 2009

We are looking for volunteers to help us with the 2009 edition of the Perogy XC in Terwillegar Park, Edmonton, AB.

Help us out with the running of our event. If you racing, perhaps your friends or significant other are coming as well. We want their help!

We especially need volunteer(s) to be dedicated to first aid. If you have first aid training, please let up know!

Volunteers are required for :

• Course marshals

• Set Up and Take down of Event

• Parking Attendants

• Registration

• Miscellaneous Duties as required

• All positions required RAIN or SHINE!!!

In general, volunteers will be asked to be available on Saturday and/or Sunday. Every volunteer will get a T-shirt from the event and lunch during the event.

The following positions are required:

Course Marshals

Course Marshals are required for the following reasons:

1) To help to ensure spectators/bystanders do not wander onto the course during the race.

2) To radio in any requests for medical assistance due to injury and to radio in any DNF’s if someone happens to report to you they won’t be finishing the race.

3) Help provide encouragement to athletes as they race by!

Course marshals are stationed in groups of 2 at various locations around the course. Lunch will be provided. Course marshals will be required between 8am and 4pm. It is recommended you bring a lawn chair so you don’t have to stand the whole time. Any noise makers/cheering is appreciated!!

Set up/Take Down (if you are not able to volunteer for an entire day, help setting up on Friday May 15 and/or take down 4-6pm on Sunday May 17 would be appreciated!)

Set up (or take down) of the event includes setting up the tents and tables at various locations – sign in, feed station, finish line/timing, post race food tables. After the event, all tables require a wipe down before putting away.

Take down will also include removing course markings along the course (wooden stakes, taping and signs). It will also be necessary to make sure the area is clean of garbage from the event. Garbage cans and bags will be provided.

Parking Attendants

There are two parking lots near the start of the race course that we require people to be stationed at to help keep the parking organized. Basically, you will be asked to direct people to open parking spots or to kindly refuse entry if the parking area is full. This position will likely only require help until noon.

To volunteer your time, please email Tara-Lee Sherman at
