Roller Coaster Race – a division of WorldStrides – is a race series that
combines running with the excitement of an amusement park to create a fun
family weekend. Run a 10K, 5K or sign up for the Roller Coaster Ride(SM)
and they’ll track your coaster rides throughout the day as you try for a total
distance of 5K. Run, walk or ride…. Everyone’s a winner!
Roller Coaster Race will take place at Lake Compounce on September 4,
With nearly 100 positions available, a call for volunteers has been
Volunteers receive free parking, admission to the park and a volunteer
shirt. The volunteer shirts this year are becoming really popular (they’re a
red-ish heather with the Roller Coaster Race logo on the front and
VOLUNTEER on the back).
For volunteers on behalf of one of their charities, they’ll make a $15
donation to it. Autism Speaks and National Roller Coaster Museum & Archives
are both organizations they’re working with this year.
If you’d like to be a volunteer this year, you can sign up on the Roller
