Marine Corps Marathon Needs Volunteers

RSS XML FeedBackground Active Sep 25, 2006 to Oct 5, 2006


Organizers of the Marine Corps Marathon are seeking volunteers for a variety of duties throughout the 2006 race weekend, and are offering this incentive: those who volunteer in 2006 will receive automatic admission to run in the 2007 marathon.

“The Marine Corps Marathon would not be possible without the support of great volunteers,” said Rick Nealis, the race director. “Our volunteers help the running community in all areas of race day. Plus, it is a great experience to get in the trenches with the Marines.”

Volunteers are needed through the 2006 race weekend, October 27-29. Shifts are available for the Health and Fitness Expo at the D.C. Armory (Oct 27-28) and on race day (Oct 29) volunteers are needed to support water points, the hospitality area, baggage, medical stations, the information booth and more. Both individuals and groups are welcome and encouraged to volunteer.

Volunteers are asked to register by Oct. 5. An application to the 2007 Marine Corps Marathon, along with the volunteer participation certificate, will be mailed in December.

The MCM events draws an estimated 34,000 runners and 120,000 spectators to Arlington on race weekend, resulting in a more than $10 million boost in the County's economy in just a few short days.  The Marine Corps Marathon also raises nearly $5 million for charities each year, many of which are local.
