Volunteers Needed for Triathlon on Saturday (5/2)
We are looking for more volunteers to help out with hosting the Fighting Illini Triathlon club's inaugural triathlon this Saturday... "Tri the Illini." The sprint distance race (300 m swim, 11 mi bike, 5k run) will be held on campus (swim at the ARC, bike south of town, run around campus) and at least one of our own will be competing (John C.). This should be a fun event and will draw a lot of first-time racers (about 300-400 total participants expected). We would love to have some first-time (or veteran) volunteers to help make everything run smoothly. It's a little early on Saturday (I believe we'd like you there at 7), but it would be awesome if you were willing to help out for a few hours that morning. Please go here for more information about the race and volunteering. The volunteer meeting will be at 7:00 pm on Thursday. Feel free to let me know if you have any other questions!
