With just two weeks until the 36th Annual GoodLife Fitness Victoria Marathon, the event is still in need of volunteers to fill a variety of areas. The Marathon – on Sunday, October 11 – requires 200+ additional Race Day volunteers, as well as individuals at the Race Expo and for assisting with course set-up. Sixteen hundred (1,600) volunteers are needed annually to ensure the event runs smoothly and efficiently.

There are many areas individuals can volunteer on Race Weekend, including at the Race Expo from Friday, October 9 to Sunday, October 11, finish line set-up on the Saturday, course marshals and water stations on Sunday – Race Day.

“We are looking for teams of people, including students and individuals to play a part of the event on Race Day. If sport or school teams are trying to fundraise, we encourage them to contact us,” says Cathy Noel, General Manager. “We couldn’t host this event without the incredible support of a volunteer crew of 1,600 strong.”

Volunteers receive a long-sleeved New Balance technical t-shirt, a two-week pass to GoodLife Fitness, and a volunteer appreciation evening with the Western Hockey League team, the Victoria Royals. “We have partnered with our Title Sponsor GoodLife Fitness and the Victoria Royals to enable volunteers see the Royals on Friday, October 16. It’s a way of saying thank you to our dedicated volunteers,” adds Noel.
