Run The Race, Then Feed Your Face.
We have many opportunities available to volunteer at the race. Even though the event takes place on Thanksgiving morning, it usually concludes well before noon, so there’s still plenty of time for the holiday festivities!
Some examples of volunteer opportunities include:
Course Set-up: These volunteers help set up cones, barricades, etc. around the race course. Once the race course is set, they’re free to go, or to stay and help with something else or cheer on the race participants.
Costumed Greeters: Dress up as a Pilgrim or turkey in GraceMed-supplied outfits, then greet participants and help foster a fun, Thanksgiving ambiance.
Course Direction: These volunteers stand in locations along the course to keep the runners from veering down the wrong street. They’re usually in small groups, so you can volunteer to do this job with your friends.
Refreshments: Prepare cut fruit or organize the tables before the event then distribute refreshments (usually fruit, muffins and water) to participants as they finish the race.
Water Station: Keep our runners hydrated, handing cups of water to them as they pass by on their way to the finish line.
All volunteers receive a special t-shirt to wear at the event, post-race refreshments, and more.
