Volunteer

MCM VolunteersThe MCM strives to promote physical fitness, generate community goodwill, and showcase the organizational skills of the United States Marine Corps. That is not possible without the help of more than 1,700 volunteers required during MCM Weekend. Additional support is also necessary during the annual Historic Half Weekend in May, and at each event as part of the MCM Event Series from April through November.

Opportunities to work alongside U.S. Marines range from distributing runner packets and shirts before the event to supporting a water point, food station, or medical aid station race day. To stay close to the action, volunteers may wish to support finish line hospitality or baggage claim.

All volunteers can pride themselves for supporting thousands of individuals striving to achieve their running goals. Additionally, volunteers receive a commemorative shirt for each event supported.

Individuals and groups are encouraged to volunteer throughout the year. Support opportunities are announced at a minimum of six weeks prior to each event. Below is a list of active volunteer opportunities.

Volunteer registration for the Marine Corps 17.75K is now open. For additional information or inquiries, please contact the MCM Volunteer Coordinator for individual and group volunteer information.
