The Wissahickon Wanderers will be once more working in the trenches at the upcoming Philadelphia Marathon on November 17. The Wanderers will be running the water station at the 18/22 mile mark of the race, which has been our customary spot for many years. To properly staff the site, about 60 volunteers will be needed. NOTE: like last year, volunteers must sign up in advance.

Please contact Dan Gordon to sign up as a volunteer or to get more information.  The hours are flexible.  Come for a two-hour segment or for the duration.

We start setting up at 6:30 and don’t really finish up until about 1 pm.  The real crunch time is between 9:30 and 11:30.  To make it manageable for volunteers, we ask you to sign up for any two hour segment, and make sure to include your sweatshirt size because all volunteers get a free sweatshirt.

NOTE: the water table has moved towards Manayunk 1/2 mile, in front of Duron Paints, across from Tommy Gunn’s, due to course changes. View the map » (note: this is the same location as the last two years but different from previous years)
