I’m a Volunteer

volunteers for the okc marathon are always neededOur volunteers are the heart of the Oklahoma City Memorial Marathon. Without the hard working, enthusiastic people supporting the runners, there would not be a race.

People of any talent and physical ability are wanted. Come and join us. It will be a rewarding and fun experience.

Volunteers must be 13 years or older at the time they register. Volunteers wishing to help with the Kids Marathon must pass a background check.

Help inspire more than 25,000 runners and ensure the future of the Oklahoma City National Memorial & Museum in the process!  Your gifts of time, talent and money to the Memorial and Museum changes lives.

Volunteers will receive an email about one week before the Marathon, which will provide further details including where to meet, what to expect and other information helpful before orientation.

Although we appreciate the crowd support for our runners, we do not allow third party water stops or refreshment stops of any kind unless approved through Marathon staff. The safety and well-being of our participants is paramount. If your business or organization is interested in participating as a cheer zone, please let us know using the Contact Us Form.
