Criterium

Thank you so much for volunteering for the third annual Alex Stieda Classic. Without you, we can’t host these events.

Volunteers

The first race of the criterium begins at 09:31 and we hope to have all races completed and prized out by 16:00.

How Long Will I Be Out There?

The morning shift is scheduled to be relieved around 12:30 so expect to be completely done around 12:45.

The afternoon shift is scheduled to complete around 16:45 but we expect that we’ll be done sooner. We will always appreciate help tearing down the event at it’s conclusion.

We will feed both shifts some Subway sandwiches for lunch!

And…do not forget the BBQ that Alex Stieda is hosting at his house once we’ve wrapped everything up!
