The GVH aid station is perched on a hillside in a remote location at about mile 65 of the Western States Endurance Run (WSER) course. This is the first station that runners can arrive at with a pacer. After running over from Squaw Valley and up and down three canyons in the heat, most runners are pretty spent. We do our best to re-fuel, re-hydrate, and get them moving along.
Most volunteers never aspire to run WS100, but they do it to support one of the most storied, grueling running races in the world.
In return for hosting an aid station at WSER, GVH is guaranteed one entry for a club member to run the race next year. The club slot selection process emphasizes volunteering in club activities and in the greater road and trail running communities. The details of our selection process can be found here. Options for volunteering in the club are listed here.
