Volunteer FAQs

General

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 or older on their volunteer day. A parent/guardian must agree to the volunteer waiver for volunteers between the ages of 14 and 18. Children and young adults under 14 cannot accompany registered volunteers who meet the age requirement when volunteering. The event may chose to set different age minimums for designated positions.

Are walk-up registrations accepted?
No, walk-up registrations are not accepted. All volunteers must complete a volunteer profile and register online by midnight on Friday, June 14, 2024.

What should I wear?
Volunteers must dress in clothing appropriate for the work duties they have been assigned: always 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 from their Team Lead at check-in or in advance. Race day volunteers receive a shirt and credential. The volunteer uniform should be worn as the outer layer, and the volunteer credential should always be visible. Volunteers play a critical role in the participant experience. We want to ensure a consistent look across all event areas so participants can quickly 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 volunteers, besides a water bottle, don’t bring personal items that cannot be carried in a pocket.

 

Is food provided?
Snacks and meals are provided depending on the time of day and duration of the volunteer shift. While we try to offer 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. The confirmation email will provide Recommended transportation and parking options (when available).

 

Registration

Can I register on behalf of another volunteer?
Volunteers can register a maximum of one additional individual in the Volunteer portal. All volunteers must complete a Volunteer Profile in order to eligible to participate.

 

How do I know if I am registered?
Upon registering, you will receive a confirmation email. Once you are registered, you will be able to view registered volunteer shifts and update them as necessary.

All registered volunteers will receive a race week confirmation email with location, check-in and preparation details.
