Massanutten Mountain Trails 100 Mile Run
Please Help! We need Volunteers at Gap Creek and the Visitors Center Aid Stations
The MMT would not be the quality event it is without the many volunteers who have given so much to the race and the runners. This page serves two functions. It recognizes some, but unfortunately not all, of the volunteers who will be there to help the runners this year. Additionally, this page serves as a place to help recruit and organize the volunteers.
Prior Year Volunteers
How to Volunteer: If you want to volunteer, please use the volunteer form. This form helps us keep track of your help. Please indicate in the Comment section any aid station or job preference. We cannot guarantee your preference but we try to be as accommodating as possible. If you want to help with course marking, mark that on the form. For questions about course marking see below.
Aid Station Captains: One of the most critical jobs is that of aid station captain. It's challenging but very rewarding. We need to fill Visitors Center, Veach Gap... that we know of so far.
Course Marking: MMT is noted for its great course marking. Kevin Bligan is in charge of course marking this year. You can work on Thursday, Friday, Saturday, and/or Sunday. More Information. If you want to help Kevin B., contact him directly at CBligan@aol.com.

*1: Set up consists of arriving either Thursday night (Bob Fabia provides us with a great dinner and breakfast!) or Friday morning and doing whatever needs to be done to get ready. This is a fluid job and does not require any heavy lifting. Sometimes it means hanging out till the next emergency. If it rains or is muddy then we have lots to do. If the weather is nice and not muddy then the day is really easy..
*2: Traffic / Parking is sitting under a tent and telling drivers where to park. Starts at noon on Friday. If it rains and is muddy then this job is really critical.
*3: Packet Pickup is a public position. It requires that you assist in the organization of the packet pickup area, prepare for check-in and distribution of numbers and swag. It can also be considered the general "concierge" area. (ha ha!)..
*4: Friday Dinner is organized by the caterer but we need additional people to help serve, facilitate, then break down the tables and reconfigure for the weekend.
*5: Sunday is an easy job and the only hard part is getting volunteers. It doesn't last long and the more the easier. At 4:00, during the Awards Ceremony, we start breaking down and moving supplies and equipment to the "garagemahal" 100 yards for the finish line.. The Retreat House kitchen (volunteer HQ and bunk place) is cleaned up and shut down. After the awards ceremony any drop bags left in the Drop Bag tent are dissembled and their contents are distributed as appropriate. Chairs and tables in big tent are stacked in a central location (easy), trash bags are collected and taken to the camps trash area.
*6: Friday swag organization is about organizing swag for packet pickup. Also, based off a list, organizing for distribution to all aid station and HQ volunteers. Needs to be done by 1:00.
NOTE: For distances and open/close times, see the Aid Station Chart.

MMT has a great reputation for course marking due to the numerous volunteers who help hang markings and clear the course each year. If you want to have some fun, get some good training miles and help us with this important task, there are ample opportunities. Below are tasks, meeting times and additional information about this year's marking. If you would like to volunteer, please contact the course marking coordinator Kevin Bligan at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please do not just show up race weekend without coordinating at least a week prior to the race.
- The majority of this year's course marking will take place on Friday May 18th. We meet, as a group, at 8:00 a.m. at race headquarters, Caroline Furnace Lutheran Camp.
- On Thursday, May 17th, there will also be some trail marking. If you are interested in helping Thursday contact Kevin "Trail Boss" Bligan at email@example.com.
- On Saturday, May 19th, race day, there is a need for a volunteer or two to ride along with Kevin Bligan to do race day detail work, mark road sections, and troubleshoot. It's a long day mostly spent in a car, but you do get to visit all of the aid stations and get some miles in running to various intersections on the course.
- On Sunday, May 20th, there are a few sections that need to be swept of ribbons and reflectors.
