Volunteer Overview and Online Application
We’re looking for volunteers in several key areas for Race Weekend.
As a volunteer, you’ll have the chance to meet and help runners and spectators. If you have a great personality, a strong work ethic and an interest in having fun, these volunteer opportunities are for you.
There is a role for everyone! Sign up with friends, family, co-workers, schools and churches.
Marathon and Half Marathon race-day activities on Sunday, March 5, 2017, include roles such as a course marshal, course monitor, or as a support person at the start, finish, or along the 26.2 mile course. Course marshals will give directions to runners and spectators, advising and responding to their needs along the way. Volunteers are also needed at hydration stations to keep marathoners from getting dehydrated on their run. Hydration station workers fill, distribute and clean up refreshment cups at each station along the route. Volunteers are also needed to set up and distribute medals, blankets and post-race refreshments.
