Volunteer group registration for the 2017 Neighborhood Harvest Crawlin’ Crab Half Marathon & 5K presented by Bon Secours In Motion is now open.  Group registration will be open from now through the event weekend until all volunteer positions have been filled.

  • Volunteer groups can be from companies, churches, athletic teams, civic leagues, cultural organizations, running clubs, charities, military commands, or any similar organization.
  • Each volunteer group must designate a volunteer group leader.

Group leader responsibilities are as follows:

  • Communicate with J&A Racing staff prior to, during, and after the event.
  • Help with volunteer recruitment, group roster submissions, and race day information dissemination.
  • Designate one person (if not the group leader) to be the race weekend point of contact.  This person must have a cell phone in order to communicate with J&A Racing staff.
  • Chronicle the group’s experience with photos so that we can add them to the volunteer group highlight on J&A Racing’s website and Facebook page.
  • Monitor the weather as the event approaches and dress accordingly.
  • Regardless of any and all weather conditions, prepare your group and have them show up to their assignment with a smile, ready to spread positivity and enthusiasm for the event.
