The race lives on and the organizers are tired! If you'd like to devote some substantial time and effort to keeping the lights on and the trains running on time, consider one of these areas of assistance.
Note: We are looking for commitment and dedication. This is not a 4 hour volunteer shift. This is getting in up to your elbows in the months and weeks before the race, or knee deep on race day.
It's fun, it's tiring, it's rewarding as hell.
