YuKanRun Around Cape Ann Half Marathon on October 20th.

CAARA has a great public service team. We have loaner radios if you need one. Come out and join the event. Just contact us and we will set you up with a radio.

Please let me know if you can staff a communications check-point for the event  so I can plan staffing positions for the event.

While CAARA’s repeater performance has greatly improved the we 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 (mobile; HT; ¼-wave mag mount; rubber duck, etc.) so we have a better idea of where to locate you along the event course per the potential of your equipment.

The course will be open and supported by CAARA for four hours. Runner safety is everyone’s top priority.  Local EMT crews and ambulances will be available for three hours to help. Local EMT crews and ambulances will be available for three hours to help

Thank you in advance for your participation!
