As we put the final preparations in place for this year’s race, we’ll be sharing “26 Tips for 26.2 Miles” to make sure you’re ready to go on race day. Click here to read them all, or follow along on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest and Instagram.
Putting on a marathon and ½ marathon for 18,000 participants is no small feat. We’ve been hard at work since last year planning and coordinating to make this year’s race a fun and memorable experience for everyone involved, but to ensure everything goes smoothly on October 19, we need a little outside help.
We are looking for 3,000 generous individuals to help us create the best race day possible, so today’s tip is: Become a Columbus Marathon volunteer!
Signing up to be a volunteer gives you the opportunity to help with every aspect of the race – from handing out t-shirts at the Health and Fitness Expo to keeping athletes safe and giving out water along the course. If you’re not running or walking this year but still want to play an important role, volunteering is the way to go!
Well, what are you waiting for? Visit our volunteer page to learn more and sign up.
