Volunteer Opportunity – Schaumburg Triathlon

This public service event is the largest one that the club handles each year. We are the eyes and ears on the course for the Schaumburg Park District during their annual Triathlon. Fifteen to Twenty members are needed to cover the 12 mile bike route and the 5k run. A fully charged HT is sufficient for this event, which makes use of the club’s repeater to help cover the entire course.

Club members should monitor SARC-ALL for details on signing up.


The location shown below is our meeting point before the event begins. Please meet here and you will be dispatched to your point along the route.
