2016 Volunteer Sign-up
Use this form to sign up for all aspects of the Springfield Marathon Weekend events.
Our Marathon Events have been a big success and that was because of the wonderful volunteers we have had. Maybe you were one of them. If so thank you! The running community and race organizers appreciate you efforts! The charities we support appreciate your efforts. We have given over $20,000 to local charities so far.
Volunteers are a vital part of creating this spectacular event. Volunteers provide safety and organization, while creating a fun and exciting atmosphere. It takes as many as 300 volunteers over the course of the event weekend to provide what is destined to be an epic annual event for Springfield.
Volunteers are needed over the course of the weekend, starting with packet pick-up at our Expo event on Saturday and continuing through race day.
Volunteers will receive a nice long sleeve Springfield Marathon Volunteer shirt as well as access to food and drink areas during your shift.

We need volunteers who can lead a team of volunteers to ensure everyone is trained in their group and in their place at the appointed time. If you have experience in leading a team you might consider helping in this capacity.
