Volunteer for the Santa Claus Run
We love our volunteers because they bring the party to Santa Claus Run! You can help with race registration, handing out waters, taking pictures and more. If you have a lot of energy and want to cheer our runners on, we want YOU!
When you are signing up a group to volunteer, each person's information must be entered. We cannot accommodate volunteer groups unless each volunteer registers for a shift. (i.e. If one person signs up and notes that they are bringing 20 people, we will only count that as 1 volunteer registration.)
If you are a group of 10 or more, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
