Each volunteer receives a official RTO volunteer shirt. In addition, you are invited to attend the Finish Line Festival where you will receive a free meal.
One of the special things about the RTO Is that each year there is Most Spirited Exchange Point Contest. The runners are encouraged to have fun, so we want to do the same with the volunteers. Do whatever you want to do to show your enthusiasm, such as having a theme (for example play to the local history or a local activity or attraction), wear costumes, play music (cannot be too loud if near homes), etc., etc. We will have the runners vote as to the most spirited exchange point and the volunteers at that exchange point will receive an extra prize.
Believe it or not, the volunteers have just as much fun as the runners. Last year our volunteers were fantastic. And the runners praised them for their efforts, both during and after the relay.
