Are you interested in becoming a Site Captain? We’re looking for enthusiastic volunteers to lead locations by picking necessary supplies beforehand, making sure everything runs smoothly on the day of the event, and returning waivers and event numbers to our ARPF staff afterward. If this sounds like something you’d enjoy doing, we’d love to have you on board as a Site Captain!   

Please email us at or call us at (916) 486-2273

We have partnered with SacRT, and they are offering free rides to GARCU! Please print or save a copy of the GARCU Flyer to your phone HERE.  Do not forget to present the flyer to a SacRT bus driver or fare inspection staff when asked.
