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. The marathon truly cannot succeed without our volunteers. There are many volunteer opportunities during the marathon and at related events in the week leading up to the race. Fulfilling a volunteer opportunity on race day is a great way to pay it forward for your future marathon, but volunteering on November 2 does not count toward the 9+1 Program.
Registration for Marathon Day volunteer opportunities is now open, and will close on July 31, 2014. After an assessment of our needs, some positions may reopen from September 1 to September 30. Medical volunteer registration will open on August 1. Volunteer registration for all other Marathon Week activities will open on August 1.
All registered 2014 TCS New York City Marathon volunteers will be entered into drawings for NYRR merchandise ($50 value) and a free non-transferable, non-deferrable entry to select NYRR races. There are five drawing dates: March 31, April 30, May 31, June 30, and July 31; one winner will be selected in each drawing and the winner will be notified by email. Complete drawing rules are available here.
