  • Volunteers must be at least 14 years old.

  • Volunteers must wear their 2014 Women’s Half Marathon Volunteer T-Shirts (exception – some water stop volunteers chose to wear ‘themed’ or pre-approved organization’s clothing).
  • Dress casually and for the weather! Wear comfortable shoes.
  • Do not bring cameras or other valuables with you to your assignment. The Women’s Running Series is not responsible for lost or stolen items.
  • Do not bring pets, children, friends or anyone else with you as we cannot be responsible for them, they will interfere with you carrying out your responsibilities, and they will be prohibited from entering secured areas. Because of tight security measures this requirement will be strictly enforced.
  • If at any time during your assignment you have a problem, notify the nearest staff member immediately, who in turn will inform the proper authorities.
  • Volunteers are required to obey the No Smoking and No Alcohol policy for the duration of their assignment.
  • Be prepared for a long but fun event day!

Cheer Zones

We are looking for energetic groups to fill designated Cheer Zones along the race course. Cheer Zones have the spirit that helps motivate and inspire each participant during their 13.1-mile journey to the finish line.

Every Cheer Zone will be eligible to win the coveted “Most Spirited” Award and 1st place will receive $500, 2nd place will receive $250 and 3rd place will receive $150!! Cheer Zone groups will be judged on the following criteria:

  • Best Attire or Theme (costumes, uniforms, etc…)
  • Décor / Signage
  • Inspirational/ Motivational messages
  • Cheer Volume
  • Number of People (need at least 10 to qualify)

Groups of all ages are encouraged to apply to be a Cheer Zone. Dance teams, cheer squads, sports teams, academic and social clubs, youth groups, marching bands, etc. – are all welcome!

Getting involved is easy! You just need a group of at least ten members with a designated adult contact who are excited and enthusiastic about cheering the runners on to the finish line and who are available from 6:30-11am on race day!
