Race Volunteers

Volunteers play a critical role in the Mount Marathon Race. Each year, we recruit 300+ volunteers to fill positions on the evening of July 3rd, and all day on July 4th.

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?

How do I sign up?

Check back here to sign-up for your volunteer position through our Sign-Up Genius that will be available in April. 

Volunteer Check-in

  • Volunteer check-in is July 3 from 4:45–8 p.m. at Seward High School
  • Volunteers may also check in on July 4 beginning at 8 a.m. at race headquarters.
