LITTLE ROCK, AR - With the 2014 Little Rock Marathon only two weeks away, the call for volunteers to help organizers with three days of activities is sounding loudly.

Little Rock Marathon leaders say race weekend (March 1-2) would not happen without the time and talent of 3,500+ volunteers, who are the backbone of the event.   

There are still many opportunities to volunteer.  

Here are just a few positions that will provide you with lots of excitement:

Registration volunteers help during the Little Rock Marathon Health & Fitness Expo. Volunteers will participate in one of the following areas:
  • Packet Pick-up (Volunteers will distribute race packets to participants with proper ID and confirmation ticket.)
  • T-Shirt Distribution  (Volunteers distribute one t-shirt, one poster and one gear check bag to each participant.)
Start Line
  • Volunteers assist with crowd control in the Start Corrals.  We have increased our number of participants and are sold out, this position is crucial for a safe race.
Gear Check  
  • Volunteers assist athletes by checking in their gear check bags on race morning.   
These are just a few of the opportunities available. Click here for the online volunteer form.
