JOIN AND GIVE – VOLUNTEER
HELP AND INSPIRE PEOPLE THROUGH RUNNING
AKRC events truly could not happen without our volunteers! There are many ways to get involved.
Volunteering at an AKRC events is the perfect way to give back, connect with your community, and get inspired before your next race!
Bring a Group
We are recruiting new Team Leaders who will organize groups of volunteers to work at AKRC races and events. These volunteer teams will have prioritized access to volunteer opportunities in our large races. Volunteer groups could come from youth groups, schools, service clubs, athletic teams, church groups, or companies. If you are interested in being a Team Leader for any of our upcoming races, the first step is to submit an application, and we’ll follow up with more information. E-mail your completed application to firstname.lastname@example.org If you have any questions, please e-mail us at email@example.com
FIVE REASONS WHY YOU SHOULD VOLUNTEER
Runners Supporting Runners
Everyone who volunteers will receive a T-shirt, and we often provide additional thank-you gifts. AKRC members who volunteer receive a credit toward the 9+1 program for guaranteed entry to AKRC major events. All volunteer credits for 2015 count toward the 9+1 program.
Youth and Community Services
We count on regular volunteers to encourage and engage with young runners on the course and at our many special events. Becoming a AKRC volunteer is a commitment to be involved more than once—but the rewards will be worth it.

AKRC is committed helping Alaska grow and thrive. Community service allows AKRC members to give back by partnering with organizations and helping where we are needed.
