Volunteer Points

Volunteer Points Criteria - Established 2007

  1. These race activities are for our club sponsored circuit races only (St Patrick's Day, Lake Run, Park 2 Park, Dog Days, and Evergreen Lake): Race Registration Coordinator Registration crew, Packet pick-up/stuffing, Split Timer, Water Stop .
  2. Points for finish line, software, and course measurement will be awarded for any race where our club has been asked to provide services.
  3. Only the below listed activities will earn points. If you would like to suggest a volunteer activity for inclusion, it will be taken into consideration but the Volunteer Coordinator and the LRC board will make the final decision.
  4. Only race directors and event/program coordinators may submit volunteer names to the Volunteer Coordinator. These volunteer lists should be submitted no later than 30 days after the event (or the last day of the event -ex: CTW, Kids Run). This ensures that everyone eligible will be acknowledged for any special awards and gifts at the annual end of year awards banquet.
  5. Individual volunteers should work with their contact person (race director or event/program coordinator) to make sure they get included for points. Please allow at least 2 weeks after the lists are submitted (which may be up to 30 days after the event) for your points to show up on the website before contacting your race director or event coordinator.
  6. If two people share an activity (ex: two Kids Run Coordinators), each person will receive full points.
  7. You must be a LRC member at the time of the event to earn points for that event.
