Volunteer

Thanks so much for your interest in volunteering with Grandma’s Marathon!

We agree with our runners — we have the most compassionate and energizing community of volunteers.

Every year, we host close to 20,000 participants and we couldn’t take care of them without your help. Grandma’s Marathon is a world-class event with small-town charm because of our volunteers!

Volunteer Registration for 2022 will open in January 2022. Please check back for updates.

For more than four decades now, our community has come together every summer to do something extraordinary, and that commitment has been shared and echoed across the globe. You make all the difference, thank you!
