Marshalton Triathlon – October 2, 2022

After a two year hiatus, the Marshalton Triathlon is ready to make a comeback!
The triathlon is a great event for CCAR operators to provide community service. We have been providing communications support for this event since its inception and have proven to be a valuable part of the event.
This year’s event is being held on Sunday – October 2nd. The event starts at the West Bradford Fire Company in Marshalton, and the participants will be bicycling 2.4 miles down to the Brandywine River…canoeing on the Brandywine…fast walking back to their bicycles…and, bicycling back up to the Fire Station. We have operators placed along the entire route and provide spotting and safety support.
Here’s a link to the official website:
https://marshaltontriathlon.net
We need operators for all locations. Operators will need to be in place at assigned locations by 7:30am. Depending upon how many people participate, the last heat will be completed by approximately 3:00pm. Typically, we wrap up before that. Lunches are provided and are delivered right to our operators. This is a very fun and simple event to operate for. All that is required is an HT. Depending upon the assigned location, operators either sit in your car, or a folding chair.
Please consider volunteering to be an operator. If you are interested, please contact me, via email at: jim.harris1@verizon.net
If you wish to be assigned to a specific location, please let me know, and I should be able to accommodate you.
Thanks, once again, for all you do to support CCAR and the communities of Chester County.
