Volunteering at the marathon is a great team-building experience and a fun way to earn community service hours. We have group volunteering opportunities throughout May and on race weekend. Some examples of volunteer groups we have had are corporate groups, sports teams, students, church groups, and families.

Jobs we like to place groups at include Aid Stations, Relay Exchange Zones, Bands, Expo Setup, Expo Packet Pickup and Race Shirt Pickup.

As a thank you for registering to volunteer for the People's United Bank Vermont City Marathon or Ready.Set.Run! Festival, we’re conducting a weekly Volunteer Raffle – the earlier you sign up, the more chances you have to win some great prizes. You could win a pair of HOKA ONE ONE running shoes, a $50 Gift Card from Hannafords, two $50 Gift Cards for People’s United Bank, a Gift Card from Sierra Trading Post, tickets to a show at Vermont Comedy Club, a Saint Michael’s College hockey or basketball game, and many other prizes from great local businesses. Check our Vermont City Marathon Facebook page– winners will be announced the 1st and 3rd Monday of each month.

Whether you end up being a raffle winner or not, every volunteer will receive a $5 Bueno y Sano Gift Card, a Texas Roadhouse free appetizer gift card and an official 2017 People’s United Bank Vermont City Marathon or Ready.Set.Run! Festival Volunteer T-shirt.
