The biggest debate in our running community:
“Which side of the start line is more fulfilling to be on race day?”
Not sure you have the answer to that question? Then take a look at our Donner Party Mountain Runner sponsored Aid Stations and participate in one (or all of them) to help you come to that conclusion. You may even find out why we are sometimes referred to as the Donner Mountain Party Runners!
If good people, good times and great events aren’t enough, volunteers who participate at a DPMR Aid Station are eligible for a free race entry. DPMR has been given a complimentary race entry for each of the Aid Stations listed below for the year following the time of volunteering.
If you have questions regarding any of our Aid Stations, how the comp race entries work, or are a race organization looking for help with an Aid Station, please contact us.
