Volunteers needed for July 4 race


WAYNESBORO–The countdown to July 4th is on and with the arrival of the holiday the Summer Jubilee returns.

The popular 5k race and 1-mile kids’ fun run are both included as part of Waynesboro’s Independence Day activities. 

A total of 208 runners are currently registered for the 5k and 1-mile run. Registration cut off is 7 a.m. on July 4. 

More volunteers are needed to help make this year’s running events a success, according to Stefanie Cook, race director.

“Volunteers help keep this tradition alive,” Cook said. 

The most pressing need is in the area of certified flaggers, who direct runners throughout the race route and take care of any traffic needs.

Volunteers are also needed for registration and packet pickup the morning of the race, from 6:30 – 7 a.m.
