Volunteering opportunities

More than 10,000 volunteers assist at the TCS New York City Marathon and at related events in the week leading up to the race. Opportunities to volunteer at the 2019 TCS New York City Marathon are available now through your runner dashboard.

Marathon volunteers—up to 12,000 strong—represent the best that NYC has to offer: They’re helpful, enthusiastic, friendly, and proud of our amazing city. Fulfilling a volunteer opportunity on race day is a great way to pay it forward for your future marathon or to show your thanks for a past race. Please note that volunteering on the day of the TCS New York City Marathon does not count toward the 9+1 guaranteed entry program.
