Volunteering at a Mass Mayhem is a great way to meet new people and be a part of an epic event! You will get a Mass Mayhem volunteer t-shirt as well as a free entry into any Mass Mayhem event, including the one you are volunteering at! To sign up as a volunteer simply click “Register” on the race’s home page and fill out the form to register for the event. You will pay the regular fee and be refunded once you finish your volunteer shift. If you are volunteering please email us at You must be at least 16 years old to volunteer.

You have two options when volunteering:

Morning Volunteer: Select this option if you’d like to help out from 7:00am – 11am on the day of the race. Once you arrive at the race, we’ll assign you a position. You’ll then be refunded your registration fee and will be able to run in a later wave (11:30am-12:00pm) or at a future event. Simply let us know after you finish your shift and we’ll get you into the wave of your choice!

Afternoon Volunteer: Select this option if you’d like to help out from 10:30am – 2:30pm on the day of the race. Once you arrive at the race, we’ll assign you a position, and you can take your place at the start line for the heat of your choice. Afternoon volunteers can run in the first wave (9:00) by simply registering on the website. You will pay the regular fee but we will refund your registration fee immediately after you finish your afternoon volunteer shift!

Important: Volunteers play very important roles at the race, so it’s important that everyone who signs up actually shows up. Please be certain that you can make it to the race before volunteering.
