We need your help! Without your support and effort, the Eugene Marathon would not be possible. There are numerous opportunities to help ranging from helping to prepare before the event to assisting during the Health & Fitness Expo at Matthew Knight Arena. On race-day, volunteers are needed to act as course marshals, to assist with corral enforcement, to provide race-recovery support, to staff water stations along the running route and to help with wrapping up festival activities. All volunteers receive an official volunteer t-shirt, celebration BBQ (details below) and the gratitude of thousands of participants!
Celebrate a job well done with fellow volunteers from the Eugene Marathon & IAAF World Junior Championships Oregon 2014. Enjoy a delicious BBQ, live band and get a chance to mingle with the IAAF World Junior Championships Oregon 2014 athletes! Wear your volunteer t-shirt for entry to Field #1 next to Hayward Field; 5 - 7 PM; enter off of 15th - Sunday, July 27th!
NOTE: We are still signing up volunteers through Thursday, July 24th! Check out areas we still need help from the link above. All volunteers check-in and receive their volunteer t-shirt at the Health & Fitness Expo. Please contact us with any questions: firstname.lastname@example.org
