Team MousePlanet will again host a cheer station between miles 8 & 9 of the Disneyland half-marathon course. We'll hand out oranges, licorice and cool cloths or sponges (all while supplies last) to runners and walkers, plus dole out unlimited amounts of support and motivation.
This will be our fourth event hosting a cheer station, and we've heard from so many runners how much silly signs and an orange wedge can make a difference in the back half of the race.
We have a small core crew, but need volunteers to come help out the morning of the race to hand our goodies and cheer so we can support as many runners as possible.
We're going to set up on the corner of Center Street Promenade and Lemon in Anaheim, just past mile marker 8 on the course. This is a great location with lots of parking options and the ability to avoid most of the race-related road closures.
We plan to be in place by 6am. There is plenty of parking in the Vons shopping center at Harbor and Lincoln, with a walkway leading onto Lemon. There's a Starbucks in that center, so you can get coffee to keep you going. We stay in place until the sweep has passed our location, which is usually around 8 a.m., so that we can cheer on every last runner, walker and (by that point) limper and crawler. If you need to leave earlier to meet a runner at the finish line, just let us know when you sign up so we know.
We'll provide everything for the runners, all you need to bring is yourself, a great attitude, and whatever supplies you want - a chair, sunblock, snacks and drinks. Noise makers of any type are a great ides - you will be sore from clapping and hoarse from yelling very quickly!
If you would like to volunteer for our cheer station, please let us know by replying to this thread, and we hope to see you there!
