Detroit Free Press Marathon volunteers are vital to making our races successful. The marathon volunteer group is a dedicated and encouraging bunch that provides support to our participants and staff.
Volunteer jobs include distributing bibs and goodie bags prior to race day, communicating to runners at the start line, distributing water throughout the course, directing runners at various points during the races, and distributing medals at the finish line.
The marathon recruits more than 1,000 volunteers. So it is a perfect opportunity for large groups such as sports teams, schools, or clubs looking to fulfill community service hours. We are happy to work with your group to ensure a great volunteer experience!
We’ll be posting specific shifts and a direct link to sign up in spring 2023. In the meantime, if you have questions about volunteering opportunities, reach out to us at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
We appreciate the commitment and hard work of all of our volunteers!
