Description

Truckee Meadows Parks Foundation is seeking enthusiastic and upbeat people who are comfortable with dogs to volunteer for our next big event, TAILS ON THE TRAILS!  

Tails on the Trails is Nevada's only dog-friendly trail run, offering a 10K, 5K, and 1m Lazy Dog Jog.  In addition to our 3 races, we'll be throwing an all-day dog-friendly festival at the Link Piazzo Dog Park.  The festival features interactive activities and games guaranteed to make tails wag, vendors, food, craft beer, amazing raffle prizes, and a free pup sprint. The Race and Festival will be held on October 7th, 2017 at Hidden Valley Regional Park in Reno, Nevada!

Please read the Volunteer Position Descriptions and Shift times and note that all volunteers are required to arrive an half hour before their shift.
 Each volunteer will receive a t-shirt, map, and manual so you better understand your position and the general dynamics of this event.  Without our volunteers, none of this would be possible and we greatly appreciate your time and efforts.  We look forward to meeting you and making the first annual TAILS ON THE TRAILS a huge success!
