Volunteer Opportunities at Pyoca

Jackson County 50/50 Ultramarathon
Join us on Saturday, Dec. 3rd between 8:00AM - 10:00 PM for the Jackson Co. 50/50 Ultramarathon. Each year we partner with D.IN.O. (Do INdiana Off-road) to host their last ultramarathon of the year. Runners have their choice of three races: 10 miles, 50k, or 50 miles. The race begins and ends on the playfield behind Pyoca's Lodge.

Each year we invite members of the community to volunteer at aid stations throughout the Jackson-Washington State Forestry. Runners will race through a 10-mile loop throughout the forestry, which begins and ends at Pyoca. Volunteers will pass out snacks and drinks to runners throughout key areas along the race route. Volunteers can volunteer all day, or sign up for specific time slots.

Bundle Up: The Jackson Co. 50/50 is held the first weekend of December each year, so it can get a bit chilly, but some years we have had beautiful 50 degree weather for the race. Be sure to bundle up and bring a friend!

If you are interested in volunteering for the race on Dec. 3rd, email program@pyoca.org. Thank you for your service and support of camp!
