Who can volunteer and what do they do?

Anyone can volunteer. In past years, injured runners and visitors to Seward have been included on our volunteer roster. Runners also volunteer to assist with the other races. The tasks associated with our celebration are many, and there is truly something to fit everyone’s spirit of fun. The adventurous may seek to climb the trail for a bird’s eye view as a route volunteer, while those who prefer sea level can hand out t-shirts to the finishers. Crowd control is always in need of more warm bodies to hold back the swell of fans and keep wayward vehicles off the race route.

If you like kids, you can help out with some of our family events, or perhaps you’d prefer to sit above it all on the announcer’s stand or in the timer’s tent. Whatever your preference, we thank you with a commemorative volunteer t-shirt that will definitely get you noticed!
