Subject: Superior Spring Trail Race Volunteer Email 2 2015

Hello Friends,

You are receiving this email because you have signed up to volunteer for the 2015 Superior Spring Trail Race on Saturday May 16 – we cannot thank you enough for all of your help!  We are just under three weeks until this years race!

We are still waiting to hear back from a few more volunteers, once we have those names and make adjustments to assignments we will send out one more email with final details and updates.

Preliminary Volunteer Assignments have been made and are available HERE http://www.superiorspringtrailrace.com/volunteer-assignments/ – if you see something that does not work for you, please let us know right away.  You can search the list by volunteer position or by last name – be sure to do both as many of you are assigned to more than one position.  Most of the volunteer assignments are pretty straight forward but you can find job descriptions and directions on how to get to where you need to be along with what equipment and food your aid station will be provided with and even how to work an aid station if you have never done it under the “Volunteer” tab on our website – also be sure to study up on the information on our website, especially the “Race Info” section (print what you think you might need) – so you have the best sense of what is going on at the race and can be a good resource for runners, spectators and other volunteers.

*** If anyone that is working at an aid station or road crossing / traffic control wants to come to the finish after their shift and lend a hand there with the final cleanup etc. (from about 3:00 PM until we are cleaned up) we would certainly appreciate it – if you can / want to, please shoot me an email so I can add you in there as well!

If you need a place to stay you are welcome to stay with us at one of the townhomes at Caribou Highlands…  These are communal accommodations and sometimes we have to cram a decent number of people in so please be sure to bring a sleeping bag and sleeping pad in case all the beds are taken.  If you have your own lodging, great.  If you are not comfortable with this arrangement there are other good lodging options right a Caribou Highlands and camping options available in the area.***IF YOU NEED A PLACE TO STAY, PLEASE JUST SHOOT US AN EMAIL AND LET US KNOW WHICH NIGHTS (FRI & SAT).As mentioned, look for one final email from us about a week out from the race with final details etc., in the meantime should you have any questions, please contact me.  We are looking forward to seeing everyone in a few weeks!

Thank You,

John Storkamp
