To be eligible for the drawing, a volunteer had to sign up to volunteer in advance (at least 24 hours before the start of the main race) via RunSignUp for one or more of the club races (Cul-de-sac 5Ks, Pony Pasture 5K, Patrick Henry Half Marathon*, Poop Loop 4ish Miler). 163 volunteers earned a total of 486 entries in the drawing. Some obviously improved their odds of being selected by having multiple entries, because they: volunteered at more than one race; signed up early to volunteer (by midnight of the fifth day before the race); and/or volunteered for certain positions that earned them extra entries (e.g., course marshal or truck assistant). *Patrick Henry volunteers signed up using the Sports Backers system, so we were unable to document and assign points for early sign up. 

Volunteer at one of the four club races during the 4th quarter (Cap Trail 10 Miler & 5K, Wegmans Turkey Trot 10K, Bear Creek 10 Mile Trail Race, Toy Run 5K) to be eligible for the next drawing. Click here for more details about the Volunteer Rewards Program.
