Hams Needed – Alamo City Run Fest – March 2nd 2014

AlamoCityRunFest_LogoHams are needed to help coordinate medical communications for the 2014 Alamo City Run Fest being held on Sunday, March 2, 2014, in downtown San Antonio, Texas.  They have multiple routes ranging to as long as a 1/2 marathon (13.2 miles), with about 9 medical stations scattered around the various courses. The routes all start and end at the Alamo Dome.  See http://www.alamocityrunfest.com/Course-Maps.html for copies of the route maps.

Radio Communications for this event are being coordinated by MaryAnn N5NYM and Royce KA5OHJ.  They are asking for more help. This was (as usual) a sort of last minute decision that the “professional skilled services” of the amateur radio community would help make this event safer for the participants.  Hopefully, the ham community will once more rise to the challenge and help make that statement true.

We have lots of skilled communicators in our group of active hams, and it’s time to step up and do it again.  Besides, the past couple of months without any major events has been boring, right?

Please contact  Royce KA5OHJ at 210-707-8125 to volunteer or to get more info.
