NEW — 7 a.m. June 3, 2010
Issaquah Triathlon organizers need volunteers to hand out packets to participants, man water stations, set up courses and handle other tasks before, during and after the Saturday event.
The triathlon kicks off Saturday morning at Lake Sammamish State Park.
Organizers need about 250 volunteers to help put on the event. The biggest need: volunteers to marshal the race and keep athletes safe and on track. Find a complete list of volunteer opportunities here.
