Call for volunteers: Volunteer Poster 2014

MAY 18, 2014

Please factor the Capital City Marathon into your morning plans on Sunday May 18th. Our event is large enough that it could affect your mobility at times on Sunday morning. Depending on where you live on the race routes, it is conceivable that your ability to get somewhere or to return home that morning might be impacted.

The marathon run begins at 7:00 a.m., the half-marathon begins at 7:45 a.m. and the five-mile run begins at 8:00 a.m. You can go to the Capital City Marathon website to look at the course map to find out where your house is on the course.

The vast majority of marathon runners will finish between 10:00 a.m. and 11:30 a.m. Most half-marathon runners will finish by 10:45 a.m. The five-mile race will be done by 9:30 a.m. Those attending churches located along the race courses may be delayed due to runners on the road depending on the time your service begins and ends.

We have volunteers and local law enforcement directing traffic to ensure runner safety and to keep vehicles moving safely. We try to minimize the inconvenience but be aware of the event and please be patient.

Thank you in advance for your tolerance and patience on race day.

Jim Lux, President and Course Safety Coordinator, Capital City Marathon Association
