Volunteers for the Love Run Philadelphia Half Marathon are needed on Sunday, March 31st.
Volunteers will generally be scheduled from 6:00 am-12:00 pm, though times are approximate, subject to change, and may vary depending on the specific volunteer task you are assigned. Volunteers will be contacted with their assignments after they register. The race will begin at 2451 Benjamin Franklin Parkway Philadelphia, PA 19130, but depending on your volunteer role, you might be assigned to assemble at a different post along the course.
Please email firstname.lastname@example.org for specific questions about the event.
What happens after I sign up online?
You will receive a confirmation email after you sign up. Prior to the race, you will receive an email with specific details regarding your responsibilities and shifts, as well as parking information and other helpful instructions. Note: if you signed up as part of a group, you will receive further e-mails from your group Captain.
What if I can no longer volunteer?
Please email email@example.com as soon as possible to let our volunteer coordinator know, so we can ensure your responsibilities will be re-assigned to another volunteer. If you are with a group/organization, please be sure to notify your group Captain.
What if I cannot volunteer the whole shift?
Once you sign up, we count on you for the full shift and cannot replace you if you leave early. At times, it may appear your area is over-staffed, but please be aware that all shifts are coordinated based on anticipated crowds. We count on each volunteer for help at the busy end of the shift. Please do not leave your post.
May I bring a friend?
Yes! We can always use extra help! Please be sure to have them register online to secure a volunteer position and Volunteer T-shirt.
How should I dress?
We recommend all volunteers wear comfortable clothes and shoes. Please dress in layers to compensate for sunshine to rain and cool to warmer temperatures throughout the day. All race day volunteer jobs will take place outside and this event happens rain or shine. Note: some jobs have a physical requirement and/or age requirement; please review the job descriptions before you register.
What should I bring with me?
Clothing appropriate to the weather. For all shifts, we suggest you bring your own food, snacks and refreshments as you feel you will need or want for your shift. A light snack pack will be provided for all volunteers. There is no storage available, so you will have to carry any items you bring with you. Most areas will have a place to set down your belongings, but it will not be secure.
