You'll get the following for lending us a helping hand:

  • I heart Esquimalt water Bottle
  • Letter recognizing volunteer hours (for those requiring)
  • Light refreshments at the event


Why volunteer? Here are a few great reasons:

  • Support a Friend or a Family Member: Your friend/family member will appreciate some support. While you are at the race, cheer the whole crew on with a front-line view of the race as a route marshall.
  • Get a feel for the event: not sure about participating in a running event, see what it's all about through the lens of a route marshall.
  • Give back: Volunteering is the perfect chance to give back to the community. Your service is greatly appreciated by everyone involved, and you'll feel a sense of fulfillment after donating your time and effort towards this event.
