Whether you run or volunteer, it would be great to see as many Whisper runners present at the second annual Peace Health Apple Tree Marathon event representing team Whisper! The race start and finish line are located on Officers Row in Vancouver, with sponsor canopies being placed in the Fort Vancouver Regional Park.
The Apple Tree Marathon includes three races - 5k, half marathon & full marathon. First race is the 5k on Saturday, September 14 at 6:00pm. If you would like to volunteer, there are many options spanning 4:30-7:30pm, including booth set-up, team rep throughout the event, and booth take-down. The race starts at 6:00pm and will last until approximately 7:00pm, with the after party lasting until approximately 8pm. Set-up begins promptly at 4:3pam, while take-down will begin around 7:30pm. You are welcome to volunteer at any time throughout the event. Refreshments will be provided for all volunteers.
The half marathon and full marathon are on Sunday, September 15, with the full starting at 7:00am and the half starting at 8:00am. Event set-up will be at 6:00am and take-down around 1:00pm. Your are welcome to volunteer for as little as an hour, or the whole event if you wish.
