ITP 251 Week 4 Make a Difference Day 10/25/09 John Staab email@example.com
Make a Difference Day For “Make a Difference Day” I volunteered to work the 34th Marine Corps Marathon. The marathon lasts a few hours but the preparation and pre-marathon activities take much longer. Planning takes the better part of a year Setup and teardown run about two weeks Apre-marathon exposition runs for two days, leading up to the event
Make a Difference Day I helped with the setup, operation, and teardown of the “Health and Fitness Expo” The Expo is where runners go to pick up their race packets and see products offered by race sponsors and other vendors Race packets include the runners bib and official Marine Corps Marathon shirt
Health and Fitness Expo Setup - 21-22 October 2009 Vendors arriving at expo hall, 8:00am on the 21st
Health and Fitness Expo Operation - 23-24October 2009 90,000+ people passed through the Expo in 2 days
Health and Fitness Expo Tear Down – 10:00pm 24October 2009 What took 2 days to setup, takes 4 hrs to clear out
Marathon DayOctober 25, 2009 Once the Expo wrapped up, we rushed back to the hotel for a quick nap, then it is off to the Pentagon parking lot by 4am to begin preparing to help runners prior to the race. The race starts promptly at 8am so there is a very small window of time to fix last minute problems runners have, such as lost bibs or where they can find the charity they might be running with.
Start Line With close to 30,000 runners, the queue stretched 1600 ft from start line to last runner
