Volunteer Program

Want a little more excitement? Over 1,500 volunteers and organizers play a key role with the Niagara Falls International Marathon ensuring that Race Weekend is as well organized as possible. There are opportunities to assist with registration, traffic control, man water stations, help at the finish line, assist with the post-race activities, and much more.  Come out and make a difference!

Why Volunteer?

The Niagara Falls International Marathon is a not-for-profit organization that relies on community support for help.  This is a great opportunity to become involved in the community, meet new people and acquire volunteer hours.

All volunteers will receive a FREE shirt and tag credentials to wear over Race Weekend.

The Marathon has 15 different water stations staffed by 10-20 volunteers at each. Team members can be out for 3 to 6 hours, depending on the station location.  While your primary job is to hand out water and our sports drink to runners, we are looking for enthusiastic volunteers that will cheer and provide a memorable experience for the runners.  As an incentive, we are offering cash prizes, 50% based on enthusiasm and encouragement and 50% based on the interest value/theme of your station (think costumes and props!):

1st Place - $500
2nd Place - $400
3rd Place - $300
4th Place - $200
5th Place - $100
