Below I’m posting a step-by-step timeline of how you want your race weekend to go, just so there are no surprises when you get there.
But first, if you haven’t signed up already to volunteer, don’t worry. I’m here to ease the guilt that is stabbing you horrifically in the gut. Still want to run but didn’t want to be tied down with race-day responsibilities? Brooke Nelson and crew need a few (million) extra hands at the storage unit and at set-up. Here’s her note:
Thursday after the run – We will be going to the ARC unit to clear out anything else that is needed, mainly scaffolding, podiums, etc…. Tom and I would love any help loading all this stuff.
Friday, 3 p.m. at the race site – Tom plans to start building the Start and Finish standards, so we need helpers. Bring gloves as the scaffolding is very hot at this time. FRIDAY is a must for volunteers, so be a helper!
Woodstock 5K Race Weekend Timeline:
Friday – Beat the race day rush and get your packet during the Pasta Pig Out, from 5pm to 7pm at the Anniston High School gym/cafeteria. If you have friends who still haven’t signed up, FRIDAY is the LAST CHANCE! There is NO RACE DAY REGISTRATION! Get your packet, go home, get a good night’s sleep.
6:30 a.m.- Last chance to pickup packets. NO RACE-DAY REGISTRATION (Have I mentioned that?)
7:15 a.m.- First Call to the Start Line
7:25 a.m.- Final Announcements
7:30 a.m.- Woodstock 5K Start
8:30 a.m.- Kidstock 1 Mile Run/Walk Start
Post-Race Party and Expo
9:30 a.m.- Awards Ceremony
That should give you a clear idea of what will take place during all the fun that is Woodstock. If you still have questions, there will be plenty of people on hand at the Pasta Dinner who can answer those questions and give you a lot more helpful hints in order to have the best race ever. Don’t miss out!
