Subject: FW: Marquette Marathon Ham Radio Assignments - UPDATE Documents
Dear Amateur Radio Operators,
Thank you for volunteering to work Saturday's Marquette Marathon race.
Attached is the aid station roster listing the aid station you've been assigned
to work. Please take a look and let me know if you have any questions or
concerns. There are three races this year and bib number sequences are noted
at the top of the roster document. Note that our sweeps this year will be on
4-wheel vehicles and will follow the full and half marathons only. There is no
sweep for the 5K race.
Net Control for the race is located at the finish line on 3rd street and in
addition to coordinating the communications of hams, will also have an 800Mhz
radio to pass traffic from the ski patrol and Central Dispatch. Just as a
reminder, requests for water and supplies for an aid station as well as
requests for the Ski Patrol or EMS traffic should be communicated to net
control. Life threatening emergencies should be phoned directly to 9-1-1 first
followed by a report to net control. Ski patrol staff are located throughout
the race course and have AED devices if needed. Net control has direct access
to the ski patrol via the 800MHz radio system for this purpose.
The Google map link below allows you to look at the entire race course and see
mile markers, aid stations, the location of restrooms and viewing stations
where it's recommended the public go to watch racers pass through the course.
You can select either satellite imagery or map view, zoom in and out and even
navigate from your location to a particular point on the map. This year, the
map also has layers of information that can be turned on or off to reduce
clutter. The map works on Android or iPhone so it can be used in a mobile
environment as well. Click on the link below to access the map:
The Marquette Marathon planning committee asked me to pass along their thanks
for your willingness to volunteer and help make this race a success. This will
be the largest race yet and we'll look forward to seeing you on the course.
