Packet Pick-Up (Thursday May 11 & Friday May 12)

Race registrants are encouraged to pick up their race packets BEFORE race day, to minimize congestion at the registration area on race day. We offer 2 opportunities/locations to do so – in Virginia Beach on Thursday prior to race day, and in downtown Norfolk on Friday prior to race day. We need volunteers to work these packet pick-up sites, distributing bid numbers and assisting with on-site registrations. 2 shifts available per day; Thursday: 11:30am-3:30pm & 3pm-7:00pm and Friday: 10:30am-1:30pm & 1:00pm-4:00pm.


RACE DAY: (Saturday May 13)

Volunteer Check-In (* 5:00am start) Help check-in the volunteers on race day, give them their t-shirt, and direct them to their assigned area.


Course Marshalls (must be 18 years or older)

Positioned over the entire 8K course, Course Marshalls are responsible for monitoring turns and intersections, along with the Norfolk Police Department. You will help direct runners to stay on course, keep cars out, and generally keep the course safe for the duration of the event, in conjunction with the Norfolk Police Department. Please note: Course Marshalls must be 18 years or older. Children are not allowed on the course.


Race Greeters

Stationed at the entrance to and throughout the race venue, Race Greeters help direct our runners to registration, start lines, and other areas within the race venue.  As our "ambassadors", Race Greeters will also help guide and cheer our runners through the final stretch to the finish line. 


Race Day Registration / T-Shirts

Finish Line / Medals

Hand out medals and bottled water to participants as they cross the finish line, and help keep the runners moving as you direct them to the post-race cool down and refreshment areas.


Post-Race Party (must be 21 years or older)

Volunteers for this position will assist the refreshment tent in distributing the post-race party refreshments.  Tasks include marking runners’ bibs as they receive their food and drinks, distributing food, and helping to control the lines of participants waiting for their food. Please note Volunteers for this position must be at least 21 years old.
