For most participants you will be the first face-to-face contact runners will have with Run Ottawa – your expertise, friendliness, helpfulness and patience will form that critical first impression. In the eyes of the participants you’re a representative of the race and an ambassador for our City.
Registration and race kit pick-up occurs over three days from May 22 to May 24 in the Ottawa Convention Centre located at 55 Colonel By Drive. You will be asked to do two main tasks; handout race kits and event specific t-shirts. A typical shift is 4 to 6 hours depending on the day. Lunch will be provided to all volunteers except those working Thursday May 22.
You may work as many shifts as you wish – just let me know you choice of shift(s) you want to work when submitting the request via email (see shifts below). Once you submit a shift request(s), assume you will be scheduled at that time unless I contact you otherwise by email.
Information notices will be sent to all Registration /Race Kit Pick-up volunteers explaining where to meet, parking, and food vouchers in late March,, early April and again in May as we approach race date.
