Volunteers needed for Beach to Beacon race in Cape

Officials for the TD Beach to Beacon 10K Road Race are looking for volunteers at this year’s 20th race on Saturday, Aug. 5 in Cape Elizabeth.

Positions are most needed in the following areas:

 Handing out the 20th anniversary medals to runners at the finish

 Parking and shuttle bus program

 Recycling, composting and the bike corral

 The Kid’s Fun Run on Friday, Aug. 4

 Medical tent

New and returning volunteers can sign up atwww.

beach2beacon.org/volunteer. Besides self-satisfaction in helping the road race run smoothly, perks for volunteers this year include a lapel pin designed like the finisher medals, a tech running shirt from Nike, and an outdoor party at Fort Williams during race week for volunteers that features food, music and prizes.

Volunteers are needed to assist with recycling, composting and the bike corral, which makes it easy for participants to ride their bikes to the event, taking cars off the roadway.

The Kids Fun Run on Friday evening also needs volunteers. “To watch these kids run and compete, the smiles on their faces, it’s pure joy,” she said.

On Saturday, the medical tent is another area where volunteers are needed. Here, both licensed and non-licensed medical professionals are welcome, including doctors, nurses, EMTs, medical assistants and students in training, to assist runners deal with any running related injuries such as heat, dehydration and other medical issues.
