Saturday May 9, 2015 is the first of the Test of Metal Group of Races, the Ore Crusher, also known as the Republic of Brackendale Nationals, and we are looking for a few volunteers to help make this amazing race happen.
Many volunteer positions are available. On the Friday night, prior to the race (May 10th), we are in need of people to set up the finish line. On Saturday we are in need of race course marshals, food station support, sweeps, course marking clean up, and finish line tear down.
Please click here if you wish to volunteer. The race volunteer coordinator will contact you with meeting and race details.
