Volunteers Needed!!!!!

Crossfit Endurance Springfield has been asked by Ultramax to help out at the race. If you are not planning on racing then consider volunteering. Here is the best part…. Ultramax has agreed to compensate anyone from CFE Springfield who volunteers with a $25 Ultramax gift card that can be used toward future race registration.   These are volunteer slots UltraMax needs filled to earn your credit:

Registration/Packet Pickup on 3/16 from 2:30-7:30 PM

Registration/Packet Pickup on 3/17  from 5:45-7:30 AM

Course Marshals 3/17 at 6:45-9:30 AM (end times will vary based on placement on the course)

Aid Stations 3/17 at 7:00-9:30 AM (end times will vary)

Please email kristy@taylorads.com with your name , email, phone #, and slot you want to help with so I can forward it on to UltraMax and communicate with you on logistics, etc. prior to race day and/or packet pickup.

I will be there  leading a CFE style group warm-up before  the race!!  -kt
