There are many areas individuals can volunteer on race weekend including at the race expo from Oct. 10 to Oct.12; finish line set up on the Saturday; course marshals and water stations on Sunday – Race Day.

Volunteers receive a long-sleeved New Balance technical T-shirt and, new this year, a volunteer appreciation evening at the Victoria Royals.
