It takes a small army of adult volunteers (not including the starter/referee and umpires) to conduct an invitational track meet. Volunteer officials play an important role in making any athletic contest run smoothly and are essential for maintaining the integrity of the competition.
At a minimum, the Midwest Distance Classic needs the assistance of the following adult volunteers (coaches are preferred):
- 2 packet pick-up personnel
- 3 clerks to check-in athletes, issue instructions and escort them to the starting line
- 4 steeplechase barrier crew members to move the hurdle barriers on and off the track
- 4 ticket booth operators—two each at the east and south entrances to the track
If you are interested in volunteering for any of these positions, or serving in any other volunteer capacity, please contact:
