Family and friends who will not be crewing for a runner are encouraged to volunteer at an aid station during the race. Aid station volunteers provide assistance to all runners during their shift but also have an opportunity to pay special attention to their own runner too. Registered volunteers will receive an official Canal Corridor 100 race t-shirt and are welcome to join us at the Sunday breakfast at no charge.  Please see the volunteer page at Canalway100.com if you are interested in volunteering.
