Volunteers & Entertainment Needed! 5 Weeks To Go Until the Brewers Mini-Marathon!
With just 5 weeks to go until the Brewers Mini-Marathon, we hope you’ve hit your stride in your training! John and I are still chugging along.
If you haven’t heard, the race is now sold out, but even if you didn’t sign up in time, that doesn’t mean you can’t be involved with the inaugural event.
The 13.1 mile half-marathon beginning and ending at Miller Park on Saturday, September 22nd will take over 750 volunteers to ensure that all participants have a safe and fun experience.
I talked with Tai Pauls, Manager of Special Events for Brewers Enterprises and she told me that they are still in need of volunteers in a variety of locations and would welcome anyone to join them.
There are two ways to volunteer:
EVENT CREW VOLUNTEERS
Brewers Enterprises is looking for people who want to be a part of the Brewers Mini Event Crew. You can volunteer as an individual or as a group.
Individuals are needed to help out in a variety of areas including at packet pick-up, at the start & finish line, or at the post-race tailgate party. All individual shifts & jobs can be selected on the volunteer page of our website.
Volunteer Groups are also extremely important to help man the various Aid Stations along the course and they are still looking for groups to join them. At the Aid Stations groups will assist in distributing water to the runners and lend some moral support to runners like John and me by cheering us on the way. Tai encourages groups to embrace their stations and make them their own by displaying team/organization/company banners, colors, etc. Other areas where groups can possibly be utilized are at the finish line, race results tents or packet pick-up the day before the event.
In addition to keeping things organized and safe for the runners, Tai’s goal is to make sure that we have an extremely fun and enjoyable experience.
To do this, they are seeking a variety of entertainment acts stationed along the course to entertain the runners. Entertainment can include anything from bands or dancers to singers or other performers.
Entertainment groups will receive great exposure and promotion as a Brewers Mini entertainment act. All bands, groups, etc. will be listed with logo and/or name on www.brewersmini.com and will be included in the email correspondence to all runners, a group of 5,000 people.
So, what’s in it for you?
In addition to being a part of this unique event, all volunteers and entertainers will receive:
- An official Event Crew t-shirt
- A ticket voucher good for a regular season game in April/May of 2013 (exclusions may apply, tickets are subject to availability)
- An invitation to join the race participants at the post-race tailgate party at Miller Park
Depending on the volunteer assignment, the timeframe for race day on Saturday, September 22, is approximately 6am-11:30am (some jobs start later or end earlier). More information can be found on the sites below.

If you’re running the race and/or can’t volunteer yourself, please pass this along to anyone you know who might be interested in helping out. It is sure to be a fun day for runners and volunteers alike!
Thanks in advance for your assistance, we look forward to seeing you on September 22!
