City in Search of Volunteers for 2019 AMGEN Tour of California
CITY IN SEARCH OF VOLUNTEERS FOR 2019 AMGEN TOUR OF CALIFORNIA
Over 100 Course Marshals needed for the world-class cycling race
The City of Santa Clarita is proud to welcome the Amgen Tour of California, presented by AEG, back to Santa Clarita on May 18! The City will be hosting the final stage of both the men’s and women’s races of this world-class cycling event, and is looking for volunteers! This year, over 100 Course Marshals are needed to ensure the race goes smoothly and is an event for all to enjoy.
Course Marshals are assigned to designated areas along the race course, such as driveways and parking lots, to assist with coordination and safety. They are responsible for keeping the course clear of pedestrians, spectators, cars and other possible obstructions for the cyclists. The purpose for having Course Marshals along the route is to keep spectators alert and aware for their safety, and the safety of the competitors. Volunteer shifts will be available between 8:00 a.m. and 12:00 p.m. on May 18. Assignment details with assigned locations will be emailed to volunteers in early May.
The Amgen Tour of California is one of America’s biggest and most recognized sporting events. The world’s elite cyclists cover over 750 miles through seven stages along the Pacific Coast, from Sacramento to Pasadena. This is a great opportunity for Santa Clarita community members to witness professional athletes from all over the world compete in our City! Volunteers will have an up-close view of this exciting race, while contributing to the success of one of the City’s biggest events.
