Volunteer in 2013
Thank you for your interest in volunteering for the ING New York City Marathon, the greatest sporting event in NYC! Marathon volunteers—more than 12,000 strong—represent the best that NYC has to offer: helpful, enthusiastic, friendly, and proud of our amazing city. The marathon truly cannot succeed without our volunteers.
Individual volunteer registration will open August 1 and close October 15. Please note that volunteering on race day (Sunday, November 3) does not count toward the 9+1 program.
Medical volunteer registration will also open August 1. Please e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
Please feel free to contact us at email@example.com in advance of August 1 if you are experienced in customer service or managing people and would like to apply these skills as a volunteer during marathon week.
We are now accepting applications for volunteer groups. Groups (15−250 volunteers) receive priority access to the most coveted volunteer jobs throughout race week and enjoy a fun and exciting community activity.
- Volunteer groups can be from companies, cultural organizations, churches or synagogues, civic groups, running clubs, athletic teams, or book clubs.
- Groups must have a team captain who will manage all communication between NYRR and your team. The captain will also be invited to training and have the opportunity to observe other volunteers in action at an event.
- All members of the group must be at least 16 years old.
Please complete our group volunteer application by June 30. We will contact you with further details.
My NYRR is NYRR’s new online registration system for volunteer opportunities. Learn more about My NYRR and create a profile if you haven’t already done so; it will save you time when registration opens.
