Volunteer

We are referred to as a running COMMUNITY because we all work together to support each other! Without volunteers, there would be no races, no running events, and no group runs. The rule of thumb is that for every 3 events you run in, you should volunteer at one. Even if you aren’t a runner, we’d love to have you on our crew!

Run Chattanooga is made up entirely of volunteers. There are no membership fees because there are no paid employees. The only way Run Chattanooga events happen is from the work of volunteers.

If you’ve never volunteered at an event before, we promise, it’s a lot easier than you might think! Sometimes, our volunteers actually have more fun than the runners!
