Volunteer service requirement

To be eligible to compete in the 2016 Knee Knacker, you must – in addition to being selected in the lottery – complete four (4) hours of volunteer service. This is a mandatory requirement of all applicants picked in the lottery.

Your volunteer service must follow these rules:

  • Is a minimum of four (4) hours total, and can be made of several smaller volunteer sessions if desired;
  • Needs to be done between July 1, 2015 and June 30, 2016;
  • Can be for any purpose. It does not need to be related to the Knee Knacker or trail running;
  • Can be done with any organization or event, or may be performed on your own. Authorization or monitoring is not required.

Some examples of volunteer work are: helping at any race or community event; Meals on Wheels; Big Brothers / Big Sisters; participating at a Rivers Day event; trail work; voluntourism; picking up trash at a beach with your family; building sets at a community theatre.
