Thanks for your interest in volunteering with NYRR! The following FAQs will likely answer many of the questions you’re likely to have; please review them before you report for your assignment. If you have additional questions, contact us at email@example.com.
If you received a confirmation email, then you are officially signed up to volunteer for a race. Be sure to add firstname.lastname@example.org to your address book, and if necessary, check your spam folder for confirmation emails. If you did not receive a confirmation email, contact email@example.com. In addition to the confirmation email, you will receive an email the week of the race with detailed information on your job responsibilities and any relevant course maps and/or layouts.
There is no specific dress code at our races. Our advice is to always dress for the weather. You will be provided with an orange vest, a laminated yellow card with emergency numbers on it, and a Frequently Asked Questions document.
NYRR strives to send an email thanking volunteers for their service by the Tuesday after the event has concluded, and it's a good idea to save this e-mail as proof of your volunteer service. If you do not receive a thank-you email by the end of the week, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org. Your member history will be updated to reflect your service early in the week following the event.
