Many have asked: What are Barnabas Runners? Answer: Our Barnabas runners are there to help you finish. I remember the first time I 'Hit the Wall' in a race. It was mile 22 in the Nashville Marathon and all I could do was barely put 1 foot in front of another... it was a 17 minute mile. All I wanted was to quit. I finally started jogging (kind of) and fell in step with another runner. We just plodded along together, without a word, for about a half mile. Then I turned to her and said "I wouldn't still be running if you weren't here." To which she responded,"I would still be walking if it weren't for you!" All it took was the least little encouragement for each of us to go on. Our Barnabas Runners are there to help you finish. Give them a hand signal or something to let them know you could use a little help or company or just to have them run with you. We want to help you finish! Barnabas was known as The Great Encourager, and that's what we want to do. If this appeals to you and you would like to volunteer as a Barnabas Runner on Sat the 29th, just go to the event page, sign up to volunteer, and in the comments box put Barnabas Runner. We also need traffic flaggers. Enjoy your day!So if you're interested sign-up and be a "Barnabas Runner". Or heck, just come out and cheer on those that are doing the 10K and half-marathon. Just another chance for "Team Compass" to be heard and make a difference!
