Why should you volunteer? Well, it is a very rewarding experience. You are supporting people who have trained really hard over a really long time! Without your help, support, and dedicated their goals wouldn’t come to fruition, whether its beating their fastest time or just completing the race you are an integral part of their running and the Kamloops Marathon! Volunteering helps with teamwork! You can network with people from all walks of life who are interested in the same thing as you. It truly is an incredible experience.

What roles are available for volunteers? We have many different opportunities for volunteers so we want to find the best fit for you! Here are some of our opportunities:

  • Start/Finish line – Help set up the start/ finish line, make sure runners are in the right area for their start, help coordinate morning breakfast, and ensure runners get their medals when they finish the big race!
  • Course Marshal - You will be in a specific spot on the course and direct, cheer, and support the runners as they make their way along the beautiful Thompson Rivers
  • Aid Stations Attendant - distribute water, snacks, etc. to the runners as they pass. Make sure to cheer and support them too!
  • Bike Team – Experience the entire course with the runners as you guide and lead runners on the course.
