The Wild Duluth races could not happen without the dedication and support of our volunteers.  If you, your friends or your group would like to help volunteer for this year’s races please contact us at adventurerunning@gmail.com or call us at 218-728-6443.  If you’d like to volunteer for one of the opportunities listed below, please let us know and we’ll plug you into that position.

We are also looking for local cross-country running or skiing teams that might be interested in volunteering and/or manning an aid station.  We would need at least one adult to work with the athletes and help with aid station management.  Wild Duluth races would like to make a donation to each team volunteering their services.  Donations would be dependent on runner numbers and dollars available.  Please contact us if interested in this opportunity.

    I would be willing to volunteer for marking the course on Friday 16th. I would get into the Duluth area on Thursday evening and be ready to go early on Friday. I also believe another runner from Fargo,ND (Joel Johansen) will be coming with me and is also willing to volunteer. Let me know if we’re needed so I can make appropriate lodging arrangements. THANKS!!

    So, guess this means you are not going with the current logo – too close for copyright issues?? I think it is pretty cool and would vote for that ;->

    Yeah, I agree with Wildknit – I was really excited for a shirt with the ‘WD-50’ can on it!
