With an event this size, plenty of volunteers will be needed to make sure everything goes as smoothly as possible. Your help is so very much appreciated!
This is a great way to support your friends and family members who may be running in the event.
Gazelle Sports will be hosting the aid station on Kalamazoo Mall St., just before the split for the half-marathoners, so both groups of runners will be passing through. Please consider volunteering at one of the most fun and exciting aid stations!
Interested in volunteering? Volunteer sign up will be available soon!
