9th Annual HRCriterium needs race marshals next Sunday

Hello, Everyone,

Bill Brown, HRC 2018 marshal

If you can spare just an hour next Sunday to cover one of the seven corners during the Criterium, please contact us thru the form below.

We extend a hearty THANK YOU to Suzanne Cairns Wells and Kevin Harris for responding to our request here on May 8 to serve as race marshals.

Marshal Coordinator, Iris Gaughan, explains more below.

Regards,
Bill Brown
President, Historical Society of Riverton

If you have read the Special Historic Riverton Criterium Edition of the Gaslight News you know that this year, money raised from this town-wide tradition will benefit the Historical Society of Riverton.

Carlos, Adrienne, & Leo Rogers

On June 9, 2019, Riverton will host the 9th Annual Historic Riverton Criterium. Carlos Rogers, a Riverton resident and civic supporter, has been the promoter of this event since its inception in 2011.  The day is filled with professional bicycle racing and fun-filled activities.  Many community members along the race course have front yard picnics and gatherings.

I am the marshal coordinator for the race.  This bicycle race cannot happen without a marshal on each of the race corners. 

Dennis DeVries, 2015 HRC Marshal

The marshal’s job is essentially to make sure that no one crosses the street during the race.  Each marshal will be given specific directions and guidelines before the race.  Each marshal will only need to be on duty for 1 hour.  Forty-four marshals are needed to cover the 7 corners for 5 races (some corners need 2 marshals)

It is incumbent upon race beneficiaries to volunteer to help. Please turn to a friend, colleague, and/or neighbor and ask them to marshal. 

Society membership is not a requirement. All I need from you is a list of names and email addresses and I will contact the individuals. Please use the contact form below.

The Historic Riverton Criterium has become a great Riverton tradition with over $35,000 given to local organizations.  Your help is greatly appreciated.

Thank You,
Iris Gaughan
