VOLUNTEER SIGN UP IS OPEN!
Give Thanks by Giving Back this Thanksgiving and become a Volunteer for the Turkey Day Run!
Individuals interested in signing up to volunteer can EITHER PRE REGISTER AS A VOLUNTEER ONLINE OR show up at Marion Square in downtown Charleston at 6:30 a.m. on race day.
The Turkey Day Run & Gobble Wobble would not be a success without volunteers who help us set up the course and assist with the expo and race day. Those interested can sign up for shifts through the Orange EventBrite Button above.
We are especially in need of adult volunteers willing to man the course during the race. We are required to have 60 adults present to ensure the safety of our runners.
