Volunteering is fun

The MHRRC will need many volunteers to help with this year’s classic race and there will be many fun volunteer opportunities available. You can run AND still volunteer, before or after your race. You can even volunteer in the days leading up to the Classic, with packet pick up and course prep.

Many thanks to all of our volunteers who give so generously of their time to make the Classic year after year a success.
