People running during a snowy race

WARS had 13 volunteers who braved the cold and helped out with the Great Western Trail Race on April 20, 2024. Our purpose at these races is to keep everyone safe and provide communications out on the course. We have many more races on the calendar for 2024.

Our next volunteer opportunity will be later this summer. Stay tuned for details.
