Thank you to all of the lifeguards and on water support (kayaks and other boats) that joined us for our past races! We’re currently recruiting for our 2017 Lifeguards and Water Support team. 

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 a flat fee on site following their shift.

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. 

To sign up, and follow up with any questions, please email us today.
