Oregon Road Runners Club (ORRC) is getting back to putting on events after almost a year and a half. But we need your help!
As a result of being a non-profit, all-volunteer organization, after this lengthy time off we need volunteers more than ever. To this end, we are asking for anyone who may be interested in helping put on our races in 2021 and 2022, to step up to the plate! We will train you, and provide support, and there are additional benefits!
As an ORRC member, you already get a discount on all ORRC race events, and every time you volunteer, you get a coupon for $40 off any ORRC event. However, if you decide to become a race director, you receive free entry to all ORRC events in the year you volunteer as an RD. That’s right… from the 5K to the Ultras, it’s all free!
What: Race Director Training Workshop
When: Saturday, October 2nd, from 9:00am to noon
Where: ORRC Office; 4840 SW Western Ave., #200, Beaverton, OR 97005 (in the Sports Authority Offices next to the “Garage Sale Warehouse”, and across the street from Kaiser)
Who: Anyone who is interested in learning more about how to put on a race, and hopefully volunteer for ORRC events
Why: To support ORRC and your running community, to become eligible for free ORRC entry, and to have fun!
Cost: FREE!!! To anyone who is interested. Such a deal!!!
Deadline to Register: Saturday, September 25th; While the workshop is free to anyone who is interested… we need participants to register so we can send you the materials ahead of time, and know how many people to expect.
This free workshop includes resource materials on how to put on a race, including a timeline of when things need to be done, and detailed lists of what is needed to put on an event. Designed as a low-key, informational training session we want to help you decide if this is something you may want to try.
And after attending the workshop, you can watch the Portland Marathon on Sunday, October 3rd, and see how it all comes together!
ORRC needs your help, and would greatly appreciate any time you can give to support the club, be it handing out water, or putting a race!
If you are interested in learning how to become a race director, or if you are interested in volunteering for any events in any capacity, or just have questions, please contact ORRC at firstname.lastname@example.org
