Volunteers handing out bibs



RunVermont produces and supports several races and events throughout the year. We have an extraordinary team of volunteers supporting our events. Our greatest need for volunteers is during the month of May, specifically in the days leading up to and including the People’s United Bank Vermont City Marathon Weekend (May 22-24, 2020); however, we also welcome volunteers throughout the year for our smaller events and for office work. Please email us if interested.

People’s United Bank Vermont City Marathon and Mini Marathon Volunteers

Marathon and Mini Marathon Volunteer Challenge
People’s United Bank has stepped up to help us continue to recognize the remarkable work of our volunteers and support community organizations at the same time. All volunteers will be entered into a drawing for $500 awarded to the nonprofit or charity of your choice. Supported by People’s United Bank. Each volunteer starts with an automatic entry by registering to volunteer. Get additional entries by completing a set of challenges. Want to play the game? Start by finding out how it all works.

Volunteers work in a variety of areas including Course Monitors, Bus Greeters, Entertainment, EXPO-Race Packet Pickup, Green Team, Info Ambassador, Merchandise, Mini Marathon, Relay Exchange Zones, Runners’ Food and Waterfront Park Monitors. This year the People's United Bank Vermont City Marathon has been selected by USA Track & Field — New England as it's 2020 Grand Prix Marathon Championship — a great honor and due, in large part, to the wonderful volunteers and community support our event has enjoyed over the years.
