Volunteers

Marathon volunteers—up to 12,000 strong—represent the best that NYC has to offer: They’re helpful, enthusiastic, friendly, and proud of our amazing city. Fulfilling a volunteer opportunity on race day is a great way to pay it forward for your future marathon or to show your thanks for a past race.  Please note that volunteering on Marathon Day does not count toward the 9+1 guaranteed entry program. Volunteer registration for the 2016 TCS New York City Marathon will close on August 31, 2016. 

Through August 31, 2016, sign up to volunteer and you'll be automatically entered into our 2016 volunteer registration sweepstakes! Five winners will each receive two (2) United Airlines vouchers for domestic travel (up to $500). Read the official rules here.

Registration to volunteer at the 2016 TCS New York City Marathon Health and Wellness Expo and other race-week events is open on My NYRR.  

Upon registering for a volunteer role, you will receive an automatic email confirmation; you will then receive more information closer to race day. You can log into your My NYRR account to confirm the date, time, and location of your selection or to cancel if you are no longer available. Click on the VOLUNTEER tab on the left menu of your dashboard; your VOLUNTEER COMMITMENTS will be at the top of the page.
