We need volunteers to help with the success of this event. Volunteers are needed to assist with:

  • directing motor and pedestrian traffic;
  • working on-site registration and runner packet pick-up;
  • helping with property check and giving out water;
  • cheering on the runners throughout the race;
  • handing out medals for the Awards Ceremony;
  • hanging banners and handing out flyers;
  • stuffing welcome packets and much more!

We’re using VolunteerSpot (the leading online signup and reminder tool) to organize our volunteer sign-ups for this year’s High Bridge Half & 5K and Riverside Festival. We hope you will agree this is an easy and efficient method. Whether you can give an hour or a whole day, your time and contribution is important to the success of the event.

Note: VolunteerSpot does not share your email address with anyone. If you prefer not to use your email address, please contact Volunteer Coordinator Hannah Boswell at hbhrfvolunteers@gmail.com and I can sign you up manually.

Volunteers will receive a free STAFF tee-shirt with the race and festival logos, as well as our deep appreciation! We hope you will join us for this great event.
