The Groundhog Marathon is an annual winter running event (potentially in the snow)! We’ll be picking the best dressed Groundhog at 7:30 a.m. on race morning. Check out the details below if you would like to volunteer!
Aid Stations-Bring your own signage, favorite treats for the runners (we’ll have plenty of water and Gatorade), and your party hat because this is going to be one WILD ride!
Pre-Race/Post-Race set up and tear down- A lot of work goes into setting up the courses, ensuring all aid stations are stocked and then tearing it all back down. We couldn’t do this without your help, thank you!
Course Marshals- A few enthusiastic people who stand out on the course at various turns while give high fives to the runners and making sure no one take a “wrong turn.”
Join us in February and help us put on an event that no one will forget! Shoot an email over to Volunteer@GroundhogMarathon.com to reserve your spot today.
