18th Annual Mercedes-Benz Marathon Weekend including five running events and lots of opportunities to volunteer. Positions available with our pre race activities beginning Sunday, January 13 & 27 and then during race weekend February 8-10, 2019.
Thank you for volunteering for the 18th Annual Mercedes-Benz Marathon Weekend!
You are so important to us and we could not "run" this race without you. As a thank you, we have a volunteer t-shirt that will be given to you. Please wear this t-shirt as you volunteer so the race participants and race officials can identify you as an official marathon volunteer.
Join us at our Marathon Expo to pick up your volunteer t-shirt if you're volunteering during race weekend. The Expo is held Marathon Weekend in the Boutwell Auditorium, 1930 Rev. Abraham Woods Jr. Blvd. (8th Avenue, North) Birmingham, AL 35203. The Volunteer Booth will be open on Friday, February 8 from 3:00-7:00 p.m and on Saturday, February 9 from 12 noon - 5:00 p.m. You will find the volunteer booth in the runner's packet pick up area. If you are volunteering at our Expo in Packet Pick Up or Marathon Merchandise Store, you can pick up your shirt when you arrive for your job.
When you arrive at Boutwell Auditorium there's a paid parking deck next to the auditorium or you can park on the streets and feed the meter which is less expensive.
If you're signing up for one of our pre race weekend packet stuffings, that activity is held at our office/warehouse. The address is 1911 27th Ave., S. Homewood, AL 35209. We'll give you your volunteer shirt at that time and you don't have to wear it during your shift.
If you are unable to keep your volunteer commitment we have one important request. PLEASE let us know so we can fill your position. We need a specific number of volunteers to make this charity race work and every individual volunteer is very important and necessary for our success.
Please save this confirmation for future reference. If you have any questions regarding your volunteer job, please do not hesitate to contact me at our office phone number or through e-mail. An email will be sent directly to you in February prior to race weekend with all the information you will need to know about your volunteer position. Please be looking for this email so there is no confusion regarding your duties.
