Volunteers still needed for Steamboat Triathlon
The Steamboat Triathlon has once again sold out. However, volunteers still are needed. Volunteers can experience first-hand what it's like to race in a triathlon without having to partake in any training. Body markers, timers, course marshals, directional officers, and race line finisher assistants are needed. The triathlon is Aug. 26, and there will be community service credit available for volunteers. Shifts begin at 5:30 a.m. and are between two and three hours long. Call Joy Rasmussen, volunteer coordinator and founder of the Steamboat Springs Triathlon, at 846-8678 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
