Important to realize, is that volunteers are just as crucial to any race as the runners. Without volunteers giving up their own time and helping out, there would be no races for everyone to take part in.
The volunteers ensure that the race is organized safely and effectively by directing the runners, clearing the road ahead for the runners. Similarly, they ensure vehicles do not enter the runner’s course, distribute drinks to hydrate the runners during and after the race. Additionally, they distribute the post-race items for the runners, assist any runner who may need attention, direct runners and spectators before, during and after the race to the desired locations, etc.
