Please give encouragement and congratulations to each cyclist as you direct them along the course. Also, please note the times of the first and last cyclist who passes each location. This will allow for more accurate scheduling of future volunteers. All course marshals should go directly to assigned location on the morning of the event. Course marshals are to pull out any “Caution Bicycle Event” signage & barricades off the side of the road prior to the event and remove from the road after the sweep truck passes.
OTHER IMPORTANT INFORMATION: All course marshals may be asked to attend a meeting approximately one week prior to the Redbud. At this meeting, volunteers will be given specific instructions regarding where to stand on course, where to park their car off course, how to direct runners etc. This meeting will be scheduled at a convenient time for the volunteers (after work or on a weekend) and will last approximately 45 minutes.
