“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 us help our fellow athletes achieve their goals

  • with registration and packet pick-ups at the race or the week leading up to the race
  • on race morning with set up and tear down
  • 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 beverage 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.

If students need service hours, our races offer a fun and rewarding experience for them. We’ll sign your school form after the event.

Or perhaps you’re an athlete not entered to participate due to injury or other reasons – here’s an excellent opportunity to help your fellow athletes and socialize with them afterward in a beautiful park setting.

Volunteer Fundraising Opportunity – Adopt an Aid Station

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 four volunteers will receive a post-race donation. 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.

Many thanks to all in the Tampa Bay community for your continued support on behalf of our athletes.
