2018 Endless Summer Trail Run Series Volunteer Email French 5KM

​Hi Everybody!

First off, we would thank you all for volunteering for the Endless Summer Trail Run Series French 5KM on Wednesday June 13th, 2018 – we are 1 week out from the race! Without your help we couldn’t put on awesome races like this!

Volunteer assignments have been made and can be found HERE https://www.estrs.com/volunteer-assignments-french-5km/ – be sure to search by last name and job as many of you will have more than one task that night. Please be sure to let me know if something does not work for you and we can adjust! As always, anyone willing to stay to the very end and help until the trailer is loaded, it is greatly appreciated! You can report to those listed as LEADS for the positions you have been assigned.

Race number pickup starts at 5:00PM (the race starts at 6:30PM) from the Moraine Shelter at French Regional Park in Plymouth – 12605 Rockford Rd, Plymouth, MN 55441 https://goo.gl/maps/E2CW2hZFev92. Once you arrive at French Park, follow the signs to the Moraine and Skyline Shelters this is the start / finish area for the race. We are usually packed up and out by 9:00PM. Be sure to pick up a sticker (this year’s giveaway) for yourself when you arrive and also stay for Pizza and beverages after!

As of right now, we do not have anyone assigned to a water stop – we don’t do water stops at 5KM races or shorter UNLESS it gets crazy hot, like 90F+, we will assess on race day AND if we do a water stop, it will be un-manned. If anyone that is volunteering has a pickup truck and would be willing to go with Bill Pomerenke to pick the water stop stuff up after all the runners have been through, that would be huge, please reply to this email and let me know! (two tables, two garbage cans, a few water jugs)

Let me know if you have any questions – otherwise we will see you next Wednesday and we will get you pointed in the right direction when you arrive! More general info about the French 5KM can be found HERE https://www.estrs.com/french-5km/.

Thank You,

About ESTRS:
Remember when you were young and the summer days were hot, relaxing and seemingly endless?  Well, as adults we still get that but usually only on weekends and holidays… until now.  The Endless Summer Trail Run Series is the brain-child of two passionate Minnesota trail-running main-stays – Rocksteady Running and Twin Cities Running Company.  The series was created to provide low-key, low-pressure trail running / racing opportunities for people of all ages, abilities and levels of experience. Whether you are a seasoned trail or road racer, first time trail-racer, need a tune-up for your next race, need to get in some speed-work or just want to have some pizza, pop and beer with us at the finish – running one or all of the races in the series is for you.  The Endless Summer Trail Run Series has garnered a strong local following and has gotten significant national media coverage as one of the best organized and most well attended trail running series in the country!
