YuKanRun Dual Race, Volunteers Requested, March 26, 2017

The YuKanRun Fool’s Dual Race Series is a totally unique race concept. For 5K races and shorter, we’re looking for check point operators. For half marathon races we would like to have six check points. We also need a Net Control operator, Incident Command, and a Race Tail operator for each event. Please let us know if you can staff a communications check-point for the event by Sunday, March 26, so we can plan staffing positions.

This event starts at the O’Maley Middle School, 32 Cherry Street, Gloucester. The 5K Race starts at 08:00 and loops clockwise around the Riverdale proximity. Half Marathon starts at 09:00 and runs up Washington into Rockport and back. Support cut-off time will be about four hours after half marathon start.

While CAARA’s repeater performance has greatly improved with the replacement of our new antennas, the northern region of this course may still experience some difficulty with communications–especially with low-powered HTs–so we’ll be looking for higher-powered equipment to staff those areas.

Please let us know what type of equipment you plan to use (i.e., mobile; H-T; 1/4-wave magnetic mount, OEM rubber duck, etc.) so we have a better idea of where to assign you along the event course.

Thank you in advance for your participation! You can sign up at http://www.nsradio.org.
