VOLUNTEERS

Volunteers are a vital asset to the Teton Dam Marathon Events. We are calling for groups and volunteers to help us make the Teton Dam Marathon a success.

Responsibilities of a volunteer include some of the following:

  • Packet Pick-up
  • Water and Aid Stations
  • Traffic Control
  • Course set-up and take-down
  • Finish line duties

All Volunteers will wear a DAM Volunteer t-shirt during the activities and can keep the t-shirt at the end of the day. The Teton DAM Marathon Committee and the City of Rexburg thank you in advance for your time and help.

Each volunteer gets to come to our pre race PIZZA PARTY and info training meeting! The pizza party will be held on May 30st a 6 p.m. in the Lecture Hall in the Smith building on the Brigham Young University-Idaho campus. 

WHO ARE HOMESTRETCH HEROES?

You, the great members of our community. Homestretch Heroes is the title given to all community members that get involved by coming to watch and cheer on the Teton Dam Marathon participants.

You will make a difference as you cheer the athletes on and give them an extra boost. We want to show the athletes from all over the country what great, friendly people live in Rexburg. We are America's Family Community. Let's show what that means by supporting these events.
