He gave this role of tickets and a Sharpie and told me to start numbering them from 1 through 300. This is a small low key race so no timing chips were used. So you guessed it, my second job was to stand at the finish line and give every runner a ticket as they came across. It wasn't a bad gig. It was kinda fun actually. I got to congratulate EVERY runner as they came up to me. I dont think I ever said "Good Job" or "Great Run" so much in my whole life! The funny part was seeing just about every one struggle to grab this 1"x2" piece of paper from me after running five miles.... I joked with some of them saying that this was the hardest part of the race! LOL
I think I gained 5 points towards my goal. I'm not exactly sure how many points I need to earn the time waived entry. I think they take top 15 or so people at the end of the year. The link in their site is down at this very moment so I can't confirm.
It was an awesome experience and I can't wait for the next one!!
