Welcome to "The BEST Volunteer Team" Long Haul 100 CrowdRise project page.
The 2011 Long Haul 100 Ultra-Marathon was an amazing success thanks to YOU!!
The proceeds from that (unusually cold -- brrrr) day were over $10k and every penny of it went to the work of Praxis Haiti.
You made the difference, everything from the items we borrowed, to the countless people who volunteered their time and made the race a huge success.
The runners were blown away by YOU, here are a few quotes:
“Thank you again for organizing a fantastic race. Everything ran so smoothly (well except runners like me at the end ;-) ) and the volunteers were simply outstanding. I had nice chats with them at almost every checkpoint. It's the people that really make an event happen like this –“
“Thanks so much for a great event! I think I am now spoiled and most other events will pale in comparison to Long Haul! You and your staff left no stone unturned and were so helpful, and I couldn't have done it without them.”
“I had such a great time!!!!! I plan to have this on my race calendar every year!! You guys were amazing from packet pick up to finish line.”
“The Long Haul Staff was awesome it was like having your whole family there getting you food drinks and a blanket at the end, you were all incredible thank you.”
Those are just a few! We heard how good the food was, how organized everything was, but hands down the most sincere and frequent comment we received was the LONG HAUL VOLUNTEERS (that’s you) were the best they’d ever seen!
Your service and sacrifice was an incredible blessing to the participants of the Long Haul and to Praxis who will benefit for years to come!
Are you in for January 2012?
The course has been changed and the entire race will be held within the Cypress Creek Preserve and there will be only two Aid Stations, strategically placed for multiplying effectiveness -- which makes our job even easier!
Many of you asked and so this year we will be including a fundraising campaign for the Volunteer Team this year as well, with prizes for top fundraising (individual and teams) watch for more info about that.
Thanks again! See you in January!!
