Volunteer for the Flyers’ Gel Station for the NYC Marathon

November 3 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm

As many of you may know - training for the New York City Marathon has officially begun!

But if you're not planning on running the marathon - come out and support your teammates and other runners at the official New York Flyers Manhattan Gel Station!

November may seem very far away right now as we sweat our way through runs but it will be here before you know it!

Marathon Sunday - the BEST DAY in the city! - is November 3rd and if you want to be a part of it without running - this is your chance!

Support your friends, fellow Flyers, family members and 50K+ other random strangers get through the toughest point on the course by supplying life giving SIS gels and cheers of encouragement at the Mile 18 Gel station!

Here are the details:

• Two shifts available: 8am-2pm and 1pm-5:30pm

• Location: 97th and 1st Ave (mile 18)

• If you ask your family or friends to join us as volunteers, they will need to create a profile on the NYRR page before they can sign up for a shift (they don't need to be a member)

• Please remember to designate that you (or your family/friends) are joining the station as a New York Flyer in the pull down menu so we get credit. We get an extra bib for next year's marathon for every 20 people we bring out on the day

• Children are welcome! You will be able to add them to your sign up or sign them up separately

Here is the link to our shifts on the NYRR volunteer page - please sign up for either Shift 1 8am-2pm or Shift 2 1pm-5:30pm

If you have any questions feel free to contact Hiromi directly - I'm happy to answer any questions or find the answer for you if I don't know. Note: This does not qualify for 9+1.

Come out and join us - it really is THE BEST DAY IN NYC!

Please don't wait! If there is any chance that you will be able to join us, please sign up NOW! You can always cancel if you need to - it is much more fuss for me to have you manually added after registration is closed.
