Volunteer Guidelines

Please review the following volunteer guidelines. As Wineglass Weekend approaches, you will be contacted by your area captain who will provide you with additional instructions.

  • Volunteers must register online in advance.  Walk-ins will not be accepted.

  • Many volunteer areas require that you stand throughout your shift and work outside in any weather.  

  • Finish line setup and teardown require that you are able to lift up to 20 lbs.

  • If you are dealing directly with runners you will receive a volunteer t-shirt which should be worn during your entire shift. We will do our best to accommodate size requests. Volunteers not dealing directly with runners will not receive t-shirts.

  • Volunteers working in the finish line area will receive credentials which must be worn and visible during your entire shift. 

  • Please arrive on time for your shift and work your entire shift. If you need to leave early in the case of an emergency, please let your area captain know.
