The San Luis Obispo Marathon, Half & 5K has several ways for you to get involved. We'd love to have you as part of our large volunteer core.
It takes 1,000 dedicated souls to make sure our runners & walkers are safe and have a memorable time. Join our #RaceSLO Tribe and help create the best San Luis Obipso athlete experience possible while supporting our non-profit partner Jack's Helping Hand. We have Friday afternoon, Saturday or Sunday volunteer options as well as a huge variety of positions. All volunteers will receive a collectible event shirt, snacks and drinks. We will notify you prior to the event of your volunteer assignments.
New for 2017!!
We would like to let you know of two new exciting Volunteer Rewards opportunities that we have starting in 2017 for all of our Events (SLO Marathon, SLO Ultra, SLO Ultra Mt. Bike Race, and the SLO GranFondo):
1) Team Player:
A “team player”, by definition, is a volunteer that helps with more than one event per year. For example, a volunteer that helps with the SLO Marathon and then the SLO Ultra, and maybe even perhaps then the Fondo.
When the Volunteer Director or a Manager notes that you have volunteered for more than one RACE SLO event, you will be offered Race Slo Bucks!
Upon qualifying for this perk, Team Players will get $5 RaceSLO Bucks, which can be used to purchase food, beer or any merchandise at the Festival. For purchases over $5, the vendors will be able to discount your purchase accordingly.
2) A Coach:
A “Coach” is a volunteer that brings/recruits a minimum of 20 volunteers to the event. They have to commit to bring 20 volunteers to the event, have 20 people show up and be on time to the designated volunteer post(s) and have their 20 people stay for the entire volunteer shift.
A Coach will be given a $300 donation toward their group!
A coach can bring more than 20 people, but even if the coach brings 30 people or 40 people, the donation is still $300 per group.
Note: A volunteer’s Manager will confirm that the above criteria were met, and a $300 donation will be mailed to the Coach after the event.
We are really excited about our new VOLUNTEER REWARDS PROGRAM and we can’t wait to have you join the RaceSLO Tribe!!
Contact Volunteer@raceslo.com with any questions.
Thank you for sharing our mission!
