Race Volunteers

Here’s the SignUp Genius link for volunteering:


Volunteers play a critical role in the Mount Marathon Race. Each year, we recruit 300+ volunteers to fill positions. This year the duties will be on the evening of Tuesday July 6 and all day on Wednesday July 7.

Volunteer for …

  • Course set-up and take down
  • Racer check-in
  • Bib pick-up
  • Downtown traffic/vehicle control
  • Downtown crowd control
  • On-mountain recording of bib numbers
  • On-mountain crowd control at halfway point and summit
  • Trail Sweeping
  • Finisher t-shirt and patch distribution
  • And more

Things to Consider Before Choosing

  • Are you racing too? When is your race scheduled this year?
  • Are there specific jobs you’d prefer?
  • Do you prefer an indoors job or outdoors?
  • Are you willing and able to climb halfway or all the way up the mountain to do timing/crowd control?
