Volunteer FAQs

To help make this year’s race a successful and positive experience for everyone, we expect all volunteers to abide by the volunteer policies.



What is the age requirement for volunteers?
The volunteer age minimum is 14 years old, and accompanying children are not permitted. We require that all volunteers be 14 years of age or older on the day they volunteer. A parent/guardian must agree to the volunteer waiver for volunteers between the ages of 14 and 18. Children and young adults under 14 are not permitted to accompany registered volunteers who meet the age requirement when volunteering. The event has the right to set different age minimums for designated positions.


Are walk-up registrations accepted?
No, walk-up registrations are not accepted. All volunteers must register online by Friday, June 16, 2023, at midnight.


What should I wear?
Volunteers are expected to dress in clothing appropriate for the work duties they have been assigned to perform. Always make sure to check the weather in advance. Wear closed-toe shoes at all times and the current event volunteer shirt provided. When volunteering at IG Field, you must have visible current event-issued credentials to be on the premises.


What is the volunteer uniform?
All volunteers will receive their volunteer shirt and credentials at check-in or in advance from their Team Lead. Race day volunteers receive a shirt and credential. The volunteer uniform should be worn as the outer layer, and the volunteer credential should be visible at all times. Volunteers play a critical role in the participant experience. We want to ensure a consistent look across all areas of the event, so participants can easily identify race volunteers and officials.


What should I bring?
It is strongly discouraged to bring any personal belongings to the event. Manitoba Marathon would recommend that, other than a water bottle, volunteers don’t bring personal items that cannot be carried in a pocket.


Is food provided?
Snacks and meals are provided depending upon the time of day and duration of the volunteer shift. While we try to provide a range of food items, we cannot guarantee that meals will accommodate all dietary restrictions.


Transportation and parking
We encourage volunteers to use public transportation when possible. Recommended transportation options and parking options (when available) will be provided in the confirmation email.
