Instead of sleeping in Saturday, June 22, members of the Two Harbors football team were up before the sun rose to volunteer at the start of the Garry Bjorklund Half-Marathon.

Players and coaches helped sort gear bags, set up water stations and then break down the starting chute after most runners left on their 13.1-mile run toward Duluth.

The Agates have volunteered at the half-marathon start every year since Tom Nelson became the team’s coach.
