Volunteer Information

Volunteer registration opens March 6, 2017!

If you think you or your group can handle a little more excitement than just cheering – then VOLUNTEER!  It takes around 1500 volunteers to make the Buffalo Marathon weekend (5/26/17 - 5/28/17) run smoothly. 


Most volunteer opportunities are coordinated through organized groups such as clubs, school or church-related groups, or simply groups of friends who join together to volunteer.  Start forming your group today!


There are also opportunities for people not associated with a group to assist in any number of marathon areas “as needed” – and your help is greatly appreciated!  


Meet the nicest people and receive an "Awesome Volunteer" tech shirt as a thank-you for donating your time at the event, as well as an invitation to the annual post-marathon volunteer appreciation party.  The 6,000 or more "thank you's" you receive from runners are priceless! 


Come out and make a difference!


Please check back on March 6 for more information regarding volunteer registration.
