The marathon requires race day volunteers as well as individuals for the race expo and for assisting with course set up

With just three weeks until the 35th annual GoodLife Fitness Victoria Marathon, the event is still in need of volunteers to fill a variety of areas.

The marathon – on Sunday, Oct. 12 – requires race day volunteers as well as individuals for the race expo and for assisting with course set up.

More than 1,600 volunteers are needed annually to ensure the event is run smoothly and efficiently.

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.
