Grandma's Marathon volunteers have a special connection with our runners. In 2016, over 21,000 runners traveled from 39 countries and all 50 states to participate in Grandma's Marathon Weekend and not a single one of them could do it without our 6,000 extraordinary volunteers. As the runners journey the course, they know they can depend on the amazing volunteers who selflessly give their time and talents to encourage and lift the runner's spirits!
It is because of our thoughtful and committed volunteers like you that make all the difference. You make us great. Thank you!
Volunteer opportunities are available Thursday, June 15th, Friday, June 16th, and Saturday June 17th, so please make sure to save the date by marking it on your calendar! By late May, you will be contacted by a team captain who will provide all the logistical information necessary.
We need volunteers in the following areas:
• Course Marshals (spectator control)
• Finish Area Activities
• Race Packet Pickup (Thursday & Friday)
• Sports Massage
• Medical Services
• Racecourse Entertainment
• Water Aid Stations
• William A. Irvin 5K (Friday)
Every volunteer will receive:
• An official Grandma’s Marathon T-shirt
• 2 Refreshment tickets
• Invitation to the Grandma’s Marathon Volunteer Appreciation Party
• And, of course, Grandma's Marathon and its runners' deepest gratitude
