Volunteers needed for Oakland Marathon

Hams are needed for the 2013 Oakland Running Festival on Sunday March 24.

Last year several members of ARCA volunteered, including Jerry, who was 'bicycle mobile'. That proved to be especially effective in monitoring public safety in segments of the course lacking course marshals. Other members of ARCA took part as Course Marshalls and Net Control Operators. 


Ham radio jobs include:
Net Control Operators and Scribe
Course Marshals
Race Director Shadows
Bicycle (or moto) mobile

You can suggest your job preference and time availability. The marathon length starts first, around 7 AM and ends around 4 PM. The 10K length starts around 9 AM. Half the runners are back by around noon, but the stragglers need the most monitoring. Course marshals along the early parts of the route start early but end quickly. In later parts of the marathon route, you can arrive later, but you must remain there longer.
