Volunteers for the 2018 Predictions and Resolutions 5k

January 1, 2018 - Arlington, VA

Ring in 2017 the right way by volunteering the Predictions & Resolutions 5K. This year the race will be held again at the Washington-Lee High School. There is ample parking on the Stafford Street parking deck. The site is also accessible via metro from the Virginia Square Metro station. Volunteering at the race counts for Snowball Series credit

So, come out and volunteer if you want to “pay it forward” to the running community right at the beginning of 2018 (or if you’re planning to overindulge on New Year’s Eve and will be too stuffed or intoxicated to run -- we won’t check!)

The 2017 John F. Kennedy 20K and Martin Luther King 5K races will start and finish in Carderock and will be out and back on the C&O Canal Towpath. This is the perfect opportunity to volunteer if you want to honor two of our nation's leaders, but don't want to run the races, or if you just want to hang out with all your favorite DCRR members! Also, volunteering during the races will count for Snowball Series credit!  

Want to volunteer? Please CLICK HERE, or contact Angeline Hannachi if you're able to help out before or during the races.


Volunteers for 2018 Langley 8k

Saturday, February 10, 2018 - Mclean, VA

The Langley 8K is an out-and back route with several twists and turns, so the club needs lots of volunteers to help keep everyone on course (seriously, the more volunteers, the less chance participants end up accidentally running a 10k..) We also need volunteers to help with race day registration and check-in. This race boasts a 10 am start (yay, sleeping in!) and lots of parking! Also, volunteering during the race fulfills the Snowball Series requirement.

Want to volunteer? Sign up at this link or contact James Scarborough if you're available to help out before or during the race. 


Volunteers for the 57th Annual GW Birthday Marathon!

DC Road Runners will be hosting the 56th Annual George Washington's Birthday Marathon and Marathon Relay on Sunday, February 18, 2017 in Greenbelt, MD. This race is a Boston qualifier with a local, small crowd feel.

The club needs lots of volunteers to put on this event on  race day, including course marshals, aid station personnel, food service at the post-race party, packet pick-up, course clean-up, as well as course set-up and packet pick-up on Saturday.

All volunteers will receive an AWESOME long sleeve volunteer tech shirt and plenty of free food throughout the day! Note: for people running the DCRRC Snowball Series races, volunteering at the George Washington Birthday Marathon fulfills your volunteer requirement (and is one of the few non-series race volunteer options for the series jacket requirement).

Volunteer registration will start shortly. Contact Bas Auer, with any questions.

Volunteers for 2018 Fort Hunt 10K

Sunday, March 12, 2011 - Alexandria, VA

The club needs volunteers for the Fort Hunt 10K. This race features 5 laps around Fort Hunt Park, so volunteering gives you plenty of opportunities to cheer for your friends or family members that are running. Volunteering also counts for Snowball Series credit. 

If you'd like to volunteer, register here or please contact Paul


Constant Needs:

We are always looking for Saturday Long Run refreshment volunteers. If you plan to attend SLR for at least 2 consecutive weeks, and haven't volunteered in a while (or at all), please consider helping to support the group (and yourself)! This is a fairly easy job, all you have to do is bring gatorade, water, and cups to SLR on Saturday morning, and the club will reimburse the expenses (think of all the rewards points you can get!)  Please (read: please, please, pretty please) check the SLR Page for dates needed, and e-mail slr@dcroadrunners.org if you are able to help out!


To advertise a volunteer activity, contact Alison Smith at alison@dcroadrunners.org.
