Welcome to the DC Road Runners Club volunteer page.

We are always looking for volunteers for race directors, training post-run bevarges stands and many other positions.


Bunion Derby:

Volunteers are always needed to ensure that our club races are successful.  There are always opportunities to volunteer before the race assisting with registration and course set up as well as after the race helping with course tear down and awards and clean up. Check back soon for 2024 Bunion Derby volunteer opportunities!


Group Volunteer Opportunities:


Capital Challenge

Volunteers are needed for the 42nd running of the Capital Challenge 3 mile race on Wednesday morning, May 15, in Anacostia Park. The race pits journalists against members of Congress and senior government officials.

It started in 1982 to bring journalists into contact with sources, and to give politicians an opportunity to interact via running and away from partisan politics. All entry fees go to the Junior Achievement charity.

Over 500 runners finished last year, including twelve members of Congress, two Supreme Court Justices and 11 other federal judges, the U.S. solicitor general, one of the commissioners of the Federal Trade Commission, and an assistant attorney general.

Club members have dominated the race over the years, winning the journalist, administration official, and admiral/general categories.

A great crew of DCRRC volunteers helped make it a success last year. Sign up is here.



Race Timing and Co-Directing

We are looking for club members interested in gaining experience in timing races as well as co-directing club races or becoming race directors. If interested, please contact Ben


Saturday Long Run Group (SLR)

The Saturday Long Run needs volunteers to provide post-run beverages.  This will count towards your race series volunteer credit and you will be reimbursed. Contact Anna Staats if you are interested.

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 Delna Clark.
