Operations (OPS)
The vast majority of the work needed to set up our races takes place many weeks and even months before the races. It takes much stamina and commitment to help in OPS, and we welcome you if you can help. The following questions will help us place you in "OPS."

So we can better place you please check any of the following that apply.
I can:

Do heavy lifting
Work long hours
Hike  at altitude  for a long time
Work at high altitude  for a short time  for a long time
Only do light duty work
Only help in the office

We need volunteers all year long, especially in operations (OPS) detail! We will call you when work days are scheduled.
Date ranges(s) I can help:

March - May: Preparing race courses, preparing supplies, ensuring water supplies are clean, sorting signage, help set up Garden of Gods 10-Mile Race

June - August: Set up Summer Round-up 12-K Trail Run in July; then comes our busiest time - one week before PPA/PPM races! Set all race course, haul water, lay water hoses, taking supplies to summit and off-loading, set up Expo tent, set out tables and chairs. This is our Highest Need Time!

September - December: Clean up from previous races, sort supplies, move large items, organize supply trailer and office. Some heavy lifting. Also help with Pikes Peak Road Ascent
