The IRONMAN needs your help, FRIEND!

Volunteers are needed for the Carilion Clinic Ironman 70.3 Virginia’s Blue Ridge on Sunday, June 5. FRIENDS of the Blue Ridge will coordinate and volunteer as the Bike Course Marshalls/Pointers. Details are below. Click button to volunteer and use password: friendsbrp

Details: Bike course pointers assist the athletes with directions and course warnings. They will alert athletes verbally of a right or left turn ahead, slow down, tight turns, and generally, cheer and encourage athletes along the bike route. They are NOT there to police traffic, however, we use them as our eyes and ears on the bike course.

Shift notes: There are various locations/intersections on the bike course. Bike course pointers manage the route from Carvins Cove to Buchanan as well as help bikers navigate the route through Vinton and Roanoke on their way to River’s Edge.

Depending on the location along the route, that will dictate the shift start/ end time but shifts will only be 4-5 hours.
