Our 6-hour running festival will take place on October 23 this year, and we’re adding a relay option! If running for 6 hours straight seems daunting, grab a friend or two to form a relay team and split up the run in any way you like. Look for a separate article with more details next month, and start getting your teams together today!

Double Dipsea Volunteers Needed
Race day will be here before we know it. We are once again partnering with Brazen Racing to help us produce this race, and our part of the partnership is providing enough volunteers to ensure a successful race. This race needs almost 200 volunteers, and we need Volunteer Captains to head up the various aid station and course monitor locations, and help recruit your friends to join you. Contact Jeorgina Martinez at email@example.com to sign up.
The Board’s priorities are, in no particular order:
- Efficiency and Automation
- Redundancy (meaning that multiple people are trained for key volunteer positions)
- Online store
- PR/social media campaign
