“Many people fall in love with running and races, but I wish more folks would consider the joys that come from being on the “other” side with volunteering. The chance to make sure other participants enjoy their experience is just as meaningful, if not more so as we help them reach their goals, or at least make it a little easier.”
– Elizabeth Knott, Runner & Volunteer
Our volunteers are invaluable to the success of the races, from start to finish and behind the scenes. Help your fellow athletes achieve their goals:
- with registration and packet pick-ups at the race or the week leading up to the race
- at an aid station handing out water and Gatorade
- at the finish line handing out medals and water
- at the post-race party food or beer tent
All volunteers will receive a Ladies’, Men’s or Youth tech race shirt, and are invited to enjoy the post-race celebration, including hot pasta, cold beer, and live music
If your friends or family members are coming with you, they can “participate” in your race by serving as a volunteer.
Or perhaps you’re an athlete who is not entered to participate due to injury or other reason – here’s an excellent opportunity to help your fellow athletes and socialize with them afterwards in a beautiful park setting on a very festive holiday.
Volunteer Fundraising Opportunity – Adopt an Aid Station
In an effort to give back to our community, we invite small non-profit groups to adopt an aid station during each of our races. Any non-profit group of eight volunteers will receive a post-race donation of $200. This is a fun way for running clubs, youth athletic teams, school groups, and other charities to participate in our community events while earning funds for your organization.
If your group would like to participate, please register by clicking one of the buttons above. This is offered on a first-come basis and openings may fill up quickly. Please note that registering does not guarantee you a spot. Our volunteer coordinator will be in touch with your group assignment.
On behalf of our athletes, many thanks to all in the Tampa Bay community for all your continued support.
“My friend and I took part in the race for the first time yesterday and had a wonderful time. A big thank you to you for a well organized event and an even bigger thank you to all the volunteers who manned the water stations so well.”
