Nearly 10,000 runners, walkers and skippers need your help!

Bring a group of 10 or more volunteers to man a water station and have fun with your friends as thousands of runners pass through —you’ll even get a nifty t-shirt!

At the finish line, on the course or at a water stop … we have just the right job for you and your team. Need more info? Contact the Volunteer Coordinator with any questions you may have.
