Volunteer Opportunity

Hey ladies, need to get in your volunteer hours for Velorosa? We have the perfect solution. Kristen Strawhacker Bonzer and I are organizing the bike support for The Des Moines Women's Half for 2021. We need 10 people total to help out.


What is bike support? We need you to ride the course next to, but out off the way of the runners, and watch for people who may need a little help. Carry some Bio-Freeze with you or some gummy bears, or some small bottles of water to help out runners who may be struggling. You may even need to ride ahead and alert a medic if someone is hurt. You basically are there to offer some good cheer, some calories, and encouragement. Carry a speaker and play some music if you can-anything to keep the runners motivated. Wear a Velorosa kit as well.


Here is a break down of the day:

Saturday, May 1st, starting at 2 p.m. with the last runners expected to finish at 7 p.m.

Start is on Thomas Beck Road (see map)

Parking is a the Bell Ave Business Center 1901 Bell Ave., but ride your bike from home if possible.

Staggered start times with 250 people per group

Masks required at the start

After party on the lawn at Jasper Winery


We need 4 volunteers from 2:00-5:30 p.m. We will probably meet by the start at 1:45 and leave in shifts with the runners.

We need 4 more volunteers 3:00-7:00 p.m. We will have to determine a meeting spot on the course to take over as support.


Please email k.a.strawhacker@gmail.com to sign up for a spot and let us know if we can answer any questions.

Thanks!
