We rely on our wonderful volunteers to help make our race experiences both enjoyable and successful. Please consider lending a hand at this event and enjoying a race from the other side!
The Richmond Road Runners Club has minimum age requirements for volunteers in certain tasks. If you volunteer for a task with a minimum age requirement, you may not be accompanied by a child(ren) under 12 years of age. This is for the safety of your child and for everyone else at the race. We need you to be able to focus on you volunteer duties. There are no exceptions. If you arrive on race day with a child(ren) under age 12, you will be told that you cannot serve as a volunteer, and you will not earn Grand Prix points for that event.
