Lifeguards and Water Support

We are currently recruiting lifeguards and on water support (kayaks and other boats) for our 2015 race on Sunday, September 13. Hours for both roles are from 6:00 am to 11:00 am.


All lifeguards must be certified by a nationally recognized agency such as the American Red Cross and must hold a current CPR & First Aid certification. You will need to bring your proof of up-to-date certification with you on race day or you will not be able to work.  Lifeguards will report to the West Potomac Park race Start Line area and will be paid $80 on site following their shift.

Sign up to be a lifeguard.

Water Support

All water support crew must provide their own boat and life jacket. Water support crew will report to the Columbia Island Marina and come across the river to the race course. More details will be provided prior to the event. 

Sign up to be a part of the water support crew.
