Fundraisers are a success because of dedicated volunteers. We are always in need of volunteers that can assist with any aspect of the event. Below are a few areas for which we may need assistance. We appreciate everyone who donates his or her time throughout the planning and execution of the Clark Run.

Event set-up
Packet pickup/pre-race registrations
Race day registration
Hospitality area
Racecourse directional volunteers
Tiger Trot volunteers
Water stops
Post-race clean up

I'm only available for pre-race activities, is that helpful?
Absolutely! About 10 days prior to the event we need volunteers to distribute race flyers to homeowners along the route. We will also need help making volunteer reminder calls/emails the week before. The day before the race, volunteers will handle pre-race set-up and packet pick-up. Pre-race volunteers ensure race day will be a success!

Can I volunteer if I'm running the race?
Yes! Most of our pre-race volunteers plan to run the race.

How will I know what my assignment is?
You will receive a confirmation email (or phone call) indicating your assignment and respective team leader. You will be contacted prior to the race for any instructions, meeting times and specific assignment details.

Can my children volunteer with me?
Yes, but only in specific assignments. We encourage families to volunteer for water stops and runner refreshments.

Do volunteers receive incentives?
All volunteers receive a race t-shirt.

Where do I go on race day?
Your assigned team leader will be in contact with you regarding your specific assignment as well as time of arrival. For any questions on race day, please report to the registration table.

Can my group volunteer?
Yes, water stations or hospitality are perfect spots for a group to volunteer. If your group wants to get really CRAZY you could create your very own “spirit station” along the course. This may include fun signs, your own music playing, costumes, or simply a great group of people cheering and encouraging the runners as they pass. Contact Jenny Borsodi at clarkrun@stanleyclark.org if you have more questions about this idea!
