Volunteer Positions

RACE CREW VOLUNTEER ASSIGNMENTS

 

How are positions assigned?
All positions are assigned in-person at Volunteer Check In when your shift begins. We do this to remain as flexible as possible. This helps ensure that our participants have a great experience. If you do have a position preference, please let us know when you check-in for your shift.

 

What does it mean to be a race crew volunteer?
Want to be more involved in race weekend? Then this is the opportunity for you! From setting up at expo to handing out medals at the finish line, we need a solid race crew that we can depend on.

 

What does it mean to be a medical volunteer?
The Rock 'n' Roll Sports Medicine Team is an opportunity for volunteers to gain event medical experience. There is a job for everyone with/without direct patient care experience. Non-medical volunteers will assist with comfort care; while medical volunteers will assist with first aid, evaluation, and treatment. No matter what your level of training is, you are an integral part of the team to keep the runners rockin' as they complete their race!

 

How can large groups get involved?
We have many positions that require large groups (10+) to volunteer together at the same station. If you are a group leader and want to volunteer your group for this opportunity, please email the volunteer coordinator.
