Police, Fire, EMTs Are Our Volunteers of the Year
There is another group of volunteers that we may take for granted and possibly not even notice during the course of the race. However, they are the very people who ensure the safety of all our runners, volunteers and spectators. The police are in the front leading the runners around the course and the EMT crews are at the back making sure that every runner makes it back safely. And all along the course you can find dozens of firemen - some in gear, some not - supervising the course and adding a spectacular highlight with their gigantic American flag draped from the soaring heights of their ladder trucks.
They've been with us since the very first year of the race, but this year we want to pause and offer a special thanks to our police, fire and EMT crews for all the great work they have done over the last decade!
