August is just around the corner, which means last minute logistics are underway for the Marquette General 2014 Ore to Shore Mountain Bike Epic to be held on Saturday, August 9.  Last year’s race was a huge success, thanks in part to all of the volunteers who so generously gave their time and talents to a wonderful community event.  If there is any way you could help us get some last minute volunteers we would be so grateful! Below are some examples of what we need volunteers for.

Help us to continue this tradition of outstanding community involvement. Volunteers are needed for every aspect of the race, from registration the night before to the awards ceremony immediately following.
