Volunteer Opportunities

Drinks stations volunteers

There is a drink station at every five kilometers of the course. Volunteers will help set up the drinks stations and distribute water to over 17,000 thirsty runners. Cheering and enthusiasm is needed, and prepare to get wet! Please note, this is a long shift that requires you to be standing up.

Start/finish volunteers

We need people who will help the runners with entry to the various starting pens, hand out medals and give out drinks to runners who have completed the race. As a start/finish volunteer you fulfill one of these tasks.

Traffic controller

To guarantee the safety of the runners, the course must be kept free of traffic. Traffic controllers prevent vehicles entering the course. 

Customer Care volunteers

Customer Care looks after all runners who have questions about their entry, bib number or about the marathon course. As a Customer Care volunteer you support the race secretary and answer runners questions.
