Hams needed for Ashland Half Marathon

Once again the Ashland Half Marathon needs amateur radio to help with logistics, SAG, and safety. Hams with all levels of experience in public service are encouraged to volunteer.

Ashland, the original starting site of the Boston Marathon, holds several running events every year. In the spring and fall of 2013 and again this year, Amateur Radio played a critical role – providing non-medical transport for tired runners; reuniting separated family members; keeping the organizers appraised of the race progress; providing communications for the on-site medical teams. The event organizers are counting on amateur radio to assist in a safe and fun event.

The race will be held on Sunday, October 26, 2014 with a starting time of 10:30AM. Generally, this is a quick event, with a conclusion around 1:30PM.

Volunteer now and become part of a great team. Contact:
