Marathon Volunteers Were a Big Help!

Volunteers came in full force for the 21st Santa Clarita Marathon. Approximately 900 volunteers helped to make the Marathon on November 6 another success, most of them manning water stations while others served as Course Monitors along the race route. Different groups were represented, including Girl and Cub Scouts, church groups, schools and school clubs, businesses, and non-profits. It was a friends-and-family affair for some. Cheer teams from Canyon, West Ranch, Valencia, and Saugus High Schools cheered the runners as they crossed the Finish Line and gave them their medals, while the Santa Clarita Christian School Cheerleaders helped make the Final Mile Challenge Start Line a fun place to be. A runner sent an email and said, “Having volunteers with water at so many points – fantastic! Not only that but they were cheering us on at the same time – felt so terrific.”
