Volunteers to Help Striders at a Rock ‘n Roll Water Stop


Get in on the fun even if you’re not running the Rock ‘n Roll Half marathon.  

Join the Tidewater Striders at the water stop in front of the Gorilla at the Amusement Park, 3.3 miles from the start. Volunteers need to be parked by 5:00 am because all traffic closes at 6am. Park at Birdneck Elementary school, only a short walk to the amusement park. The water stop should be  breaking down between 9-9:30. If you can’t stay for the whole time period, that is fine. You will get a T-shirt and a hat, and possibly a concert ticket!  Contact the Tidewater Strider’s and they will provide you the link and code if you plan to help out.
