I have just emailed all members a final copy of the marshal list ahead of the race tomorrow. It contains a large number of changes from the original version that we sent you earlier this week. Please check your email to see where we’ll need you to help tomorrow. You might now be located at a different post to where we originally planned to put you. Unfortunately we’ve had to assign most of our swim marshals to a 2nd job on either the run route or at the finish area, so please check to see if you’ve been assigned 2 jobs.
Marshal sign-on is at 10:30am tomorrow morning. All other details in relation to what you should bring with you, etc. can be found in the email I've sent you.
Once again, thank you SO much to all the wonderful people (many of whom aren’t members) who have volunteered to help us this year. The club really, really appreciates it.
Just passing this on as I feel it is important for us to know.
For the second year I volunteered to check tags on bags & bikes as competitors took their kit back after the race. As with last year anybody who didn't offer an opinion on the race I politely asked "Well, did you enjoy that?"
The feedback was 100% consistent and positive. Not a single complaint or negative comment and this year quite a number of first time Olympic competitors who were blown away by the race, the course and our club.
The snippet I would like to pass on however was the large number of people who again this year stated that "This was the best marshalled race ever, you guys were great!"
I had no input to the race organisation beyond supporting John with equipment so I am out of place saying this, I am sure the race committee will thank everybody. Having asked the competitors and got that reply I think it is good for you to know. Well done everybody, WTC aced it again!
