Thank you for your interest in volunteering at Chattajack!
We have set up an online sign up for volunteers. It is not as rigid as it looks though! If you need to make adjustments to the “shift” please let us know, we will work with you to find a position that best fits you.
Please make sure you check your SPAM box occasionally for Chattajack emails, we don’t want you to miss anything! And, please do not wait until a few days before the race to contact us if you decide not to come.
It is your responsibility to know when, where and how your position works. We will provide you with all information and knowledge possible. Be sure to know what your assignment is, and what time you need to arrive. Please arrive 15 Minutes prior to your shift start time to check in.
2024 PRIORITY REGISTRATION
Every volunteer that works their entire shift, checking in and out, is eligible for priority registration. The registration option will be made available shortly after the 2023 race, and expires in 30 days. Please be prepared to pay the entry fee.
Parking for Basecamp (Ross's Landing) is located across the street. It is a metered lot. The best deal is to pay the “All Day” fee of $6.00.
Parking at the finish line is very limited. Please carpool if possible. In 2021 Hales Bar Marina implemented their own $10 parking fee. Please be prepared to pay it. Call their office at 423-942-9000 with any questions.
