Volunteers can sign up for more than one thing, provided times do not overlap. Or, sign-up to volunteer and bring food.
There will be a volunteer meeting for all the specifics, but below is some explanation of the duties.
Description of duties:

Course Set-up and Take down: These volunteers will need trucks and the ability to lift tables and traffic cones.
Medals at finish: award each person who crosses the finish line with a medal
