being a volunteer captain
Outside the Washington, D.C. metro area we are recruiting “City Captains” to help raise awareness about virtual participation in the 5K.
- Advertise via their personal network and local community by posting flyers and promoting participation via email and social media;
- Suggest local parks or other locations where runners and walkers can meet on race day to sprint, jog, or stroll a roughly 5 kilometer distance; and
- Help connect registered participants who would like to walk or run as a group on race day.
We’ll give you all the tools you need to succeed, including downloadable flyers and lots of ideas for getting the word out.
