Volunteering

Volunteering at TCTC events and races is one of the best ways for members to help support our mission to inspire and support all runners in our community.  There are numerous opportunities and we hope that all TCTC members will find a volunteer role that works for them.  For those who volunteer often, special recognition is provided such as free admission to TCTC Night at the Dash.  If you would like to volunteer, please contact one of the TCTC officers listed below:

Activities and Community Involvement

Breakfast Runs – Do you like a sharing breakfast with friends after a good morning run? Several times a year the club hosts breakfast runs near a nearby running venue. For each breakfast run we need three or four people to help plan and prepare the food. You can be that gourmet runner!

Community Engagement Activities – Would you like to help organize a volunteer project to help our community? TCTC is looking for more opportunities to get members involved in a way that builds fellowship and contributes to community well-being.  It’s even better if the activity has some connection to community health and fitness (e.g. clean or repair a running/hiking trail).  Let us know if you have an activity you would like to organize and lead.  We’ll help you recruit volunteers.  Help us build a healthy and socially connected community!

Races

TCTC Race Volunteer – Everyone knows that a good crew of race volunteers can make all the difference in providing a good race experience. TCTC hosts more than a dozen races a year and there numerous duties required for a successful race. Listed below are just a few of these duties. Sometimes people double up on these duties, depending on the size and timing of the race. Let us know how you want to help provide excellent races for our local running community!

  • Website and registration management
  • Sponsor solicitation
  • Course monitors
  • Water stops
  • Parking
  • Packet pickup and race day registration
  • Food & refreshments

Race Timing – Are you intrigued by the process of timing runners and producing race results? TCTC is a highly regarded provider of race timing services for 25-30 races per year that are hosted by TCTC or other local non-profit organizations. If you’re just a little bit techy and enjoy working with a small team of people to execute one of the most important parts of putting on race, then we could use your help!

Running Community

Group Run Coordinator – Are you one of those people that really enjoys running with a group?  Do you want to help others that share this passion?  TCTC hosts more than 300 group runs a year.  We try to have enough runs out there to meet the diverse running needs of our membership regarding pace, length and schedule.  We’re always looking for more group run leaders to help fulfill this mission.  Be a run leaders!

Flyer Articles Writer – Do you have a knack for saying just the right things?  Do you want to help keep other runners informed about running activities, stories and accomplishments?  Communications are a very important part of what we do as a club and we could use your help.  Let us know how you can help keep club members up to date about things they need to know.
