The shirt says it all, “You Run Mountains, And I Help.”
We all have personal challenges and goals we want to fulfill, and the Blue Ridge Marathon Race Series would not be possible without the hard work and dedication by so many people in our community. More than 550 people volunteered for the Blue Ridge Marathon, Half Marathon, and Star 10K last year. To date the Blue Ridge Marathon has donated over $135,000 to charity and had an economic impact within the region of $3.2 million. Volunteering for this event benefits the community in SOOO many ways, making it a healthier and more vibrant place to live for everyone.
We hope that you will join us April 22, 2017 as a volunteer, and join the army of citizens who contribute to “America’s Toughest Road Marathon”. For runners and visitors it’s the volunteers that help ensure a safe, and fun, event.
Did we mention it’s a lot of fun too! The runners love interacting with volunteers at the start, finish, and all along the course. So gather your family members, rally your co-workers, enlist your book club, tailgate with your neighbors and register to help ensure 2017 is the best year ever.

“Now I have run at least 25 other marathons, and many of the volunteers at those races have been good, but the Blue Ridge volunteers were in another class. As I walked through so many of the water stops, I was rooted on so enthusiastically that it was almost embarrassing. I think the volunteers almost single-handedly gave me the strength to finish the actual marathon. The townspeople were also incredible.”
