When you volunteer for event weekend you’re doing much more than just handing out a race packet or water cup, you’re supporting our participant’s journey to the finish line, a culmination of big goals, hard work and a lot of sweat. You’re also the heartbeat of this event, which supports the local community through the efforts of the Santa Barbara Running Association’s youth running programs.
Individuals and groups alike may participate:
  • Opportunities available throughout race weekend.
  • Volunteer hours, donations or 2023/2024 complimentary entries available.
How To Become a Volunteer: 
  • Sign-up for your desired spot through our Volunteer Local Portal (stay tuned!). 
  • Questions? Email [email protected].
