I’m a Volunteer

Our volunteers are the heart of the Oklahoma City Memorial Marathon. Without the hard working, enthusiastic people supporting our runners, there would not be a Run to Remember. Demonstrate the Oklahoma Standard by helping us inspire and host more than 25,000 runners as they come to Oklahoma City race weekend.

Volunteer Perks

  • Volunteer Shirt
  • Virtual Race Bag
  • Carl’s Jr Burger Voucher to use on Race Day

Volunteer Requirements

  • Volunteers must be 13 years or older at the time they register
  • Volunteers with the Kids Marathon must pass a background check

Once you complete the volunteer registration, you will be assigned a committee based upon your preferences and availability. You can log back into your user profile at any point to check for updates here. The Chairman of your committee’s contact information will be in your user profile. Feel free to reach out to them at any point for additional questions. Otherwise, all volunteers will receive an email about a week before the Marathon which will provide details including where to meet, what to expect and other information before race weekend.

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 group volunteer form.


Course Marshals

Take a front seat and watch the runners with this volunteer opportunity! We need people to direct runners at intersections throughout the course of the race. Shifts vary throughout the day depending on the location. Volunteers are needed for numerous shifts on Race Day. Already signed up? Watch the training video below!
