Volunteer Jobs

Here’s an overview of where we need your help!

Registration

Registration volunteers will help the morning of the race to get everyone registered.  You will be the first to meet our runners from all over the country. Volunteers will distribute race packets and t-shirts to registered runners.

Shirt Distribution

Help to distribute shirts to the participants the morning of the race.

Course marshals

Race day volunteers are needed along the course!  Our course marshals are vital. Course Marshals will stand at strategic turns/intersections along the course and make sure zoned out runners stay on course. You will be given a complete kit with safety vest, location and time needed and instructions.

Course set up

Race day. Love to get up early? Don’t mind a little physical work? Like donuts and strong coffee? Then you fit the bill for helping this important team set-up the course to make sure the participants don’t get lost. Set-up teams will meet at places along the Olympic Discovery Trail on Race Day and team leaders will direct volunteers to where cones and signs need to be placed.

Clean up

Race day. The Port Angeles Marathon Association has a lot of pride when it comes to leaving the ODT and our course better than we found it. If you live along the Olympic Discovery Trail (ODT) and can check for litter – thank you! If you would like to help with garbage and loading trucks we won’t turn you away.

Water stations

Race day. If you would like to host a water station please let us know. You will be given all of the supplies and will need to set up the station and take down the station. During the race you will hand out water and gatorade to the participants.

When you choose to serve – whether it’s your nation, your community, or simply your neighbor – you are connected to that fundamental American ideal that we want Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness not just for ourselves, but for all Americans. That is why this is a great nation. Because time and again, Americans have been willing to serve on stages both great and small; to draw on the same spirit that launched America’s improbable journey to meet the challenges of each defining moment in our history.
