BEACON

Old Town Run Club - Chicago, IL

OVERVIEW

Each month, we rely on additional volunteer leaders to help keep the group on pace and safe as we takeover the streets of Old Town!

CORE RESPONSIBILITIES

  • Set the group's pace

  • Act as crossing guards at major intersections

  • Help us avoid other pedestrians/bikers on crowded paths

  • Make sure no runner is left behind

  • Beacons can sign up to volunteer for a single run or up to a month

  • During winter months: Wednesday beacons MUST bring a headlamp, flashlight, or equivalent (light up party vest does not count)

WHO YOU ARE

  • Prioritize the safety of the group

  • Has a GPS tracking device (ideally watch)

  • Can hold a 9-9:15/mi pace

  • Can tell the difference between a green & red light

  • Hair looks good flowing in the wind

  • MUST be a human (we love Airbud, but pups have to stay at home - sorry)

WHAT YOU RECEIVE

  • An extra high-five in the tunnel after the run
