If you finish your assigned duty and are willing to help more, please check back in with Maeve under the Volunteer Tent near the Transition Area. She will happily reassign you to another position!

Weather in New England is unpredictable, so be sure to pack enough clothing for changing conditions. We will have trash bags / ponchos, but you will probably be more comfortable in your own gear!

If you have questions, please e-mail Maeve by clicking here. We look forward to seeing you on race weekend!
