DSE Members enjoy discounted race fees and a complimentary Summer Series, as well as invitations to the Annual DSE Member Picnic and the Annual Awards Social.  

To keep our races accessible and affordable, DSE Members commit to volunteering at least once in each calendar year.  

Members who earn at least three volunteer points in a calendar year are eligible to win a wide variety of Annual Awards and participate in DSE-sponsored Bay to Breakers centipede and Christmas Relay teams.

DSE Members will earn Volunteer Points for their various contributions to the club throughout the year. In order to receive volunteer points at our weekly races, members sign up on the race pre-registration sheet that is emailed to all members every month. Be sure to check in with the Race Director on race day to receive the correct number of points.

Members can redeem volunteer points for rewards and to meet qualifications for our yearly awards, including:

3 points: Minimum requirement to qualify for a Small Mongo award, Age Division, and Top 5 awards at the annual Awards Social.  Eligibility for DSE-sponsored Bay to Breakers centipede and Christmas Relay teams.

6 points: Minimum requirement to qualify for a Large Mongo award.

In addition, Annual Volunteer Award trophies will be given to the top 3 members who have accrued the most volunteer points at the Annual Awards Social.
