Picture This: What Volunteering at the NYC Marathon Looks Like

With less than four weeks to go before NYRR closes volunteer registration for the 2016 NYC Marathon, we thought we’d take this opportunity to re-live some of the fun and excitement from last year’s volunteer shenanigans. How? Through photos, of course—take a gander!

For those of you who’ve never volunteered at a race before, or who’ve never volunteered with NBR, here’s your chance to see what the fuss is all about. Not only is it a great way to give back to your team, it's the best spot to watch the marathon up-close. For the more seasoned volunteers among you, we invite you to take a walk down memory lane and remind yourself how rewarding volunteering can be, and why it’s so important.

When you’re done perusing the photos, we hope you’ll feel inspired to register for this year’s race. The Mile 12 Fluid Station is located at Bedford Avenue and North 12th Street in Williamsburg. Signing up is easy-peasy. Just create a NYRR account or sign in through your existing one. If you need help or have questions, feel free to email us, or ask Lilly Stevens, Rachel Rose, Logan Yu, John Riccardi, or any of NBR’s leadership.  

We hope to see you there!

Thanks for the photos, Ken!
