Thursday Night Race Committee Volunteers:

We make it easy to run a Thursday Night race. We provide a trained PYC instructor aboard the Lindsay Lord who is experienced running races plus snacks and non-alcoholic beverages provided. We recommend you have at least 3 people to man the committee boat. And the best benefit is you will be scored a first place in the Thursday Night Race the night you run it.
