VOLUNTEER

Be a part of the Mayor's Marathon volunteer team! Your volunteer time benefits our runners, walkers, guests and staff by providing help in a variety of areas, including start & finish line, packet pick-up, aid-stations, information and water distribution. And just as importantly, volunteers provide the energy and enthusiasm to help encourage our runners to the finish line!

It takes a lot of volunteer power to make it happen, though, and we need plenty to make the inaugural 2018 Mayor’s Marathon a huge success. Sign up to volunteer and invite your friends and family to do likewise and join you at the race. Many opportunities are available for individuals and groups, so choose the day and time that works for you, bring a friend or two and help us make race day a success!

Individual and group options are on Friday (4/20/2018), Saturday (4/21/2018), and Sunday (4/22/2018). All volunteers receive a volunteer t-shirt!

By helping to make the Mayor’s Marathon a successful community event, our full team of volunteers, staff and supporters also help create economic opportunities for the City of Lubbock and the South Plains by way of the number of runners and guests visiting Lubbock for the race.

Opportunities Include:

Specific details coming soon! In the mean time, let us know you are interested by filling out this form.
