Event Details

The Louisiana Marathon Race Krewe
Supported by Louisiana Runs 

If you have made it to this point…THANK YOU! The Louisiana Marathon Race Committee understands that no matter how well organized a race might be, the event would be a total disaster without the service of volunteers. We realize the importance of your time and talent and are very appreciative of your support.

The Louisiana Marathon® was established to bring to Louisiana and capital city of Baton Rouge its first multi-format event.   On January 19, 2014, the eyes of the world will be focused on the main event of the weekend – The Louisiana Marathon®. Friends, family and curious spectators will line up along the 26.2 miles of roadways filled with inspiring sights and sounds to cheer on the many that chose to run.

Some facts about The Louisiana Marathon that might be of interest to you:

  • This is the third edition of the Louisiana Marathon.
  • The idea for The Louisiana Marathon came in 2010 when race organizers wanted a multi-format event in Louisiana that focuses on health and wellness, music, food, culture, and running!
  • The Louisiana Marathon partners with several charitable organizations, including Rocketkidz Foundation, Girls on the Run, Teach for America, Mary Bird Perkins Cancer Center, Cystic Fibrosis Foundation, and Team Gleason.

Please take a couple of minutes to read all information below in its entirety to ensure that your volunteer experience will be a positive one.

ROLE DESCRIPTIONS:


REGISTRATION NOTES:

To volunteer, review the list of roles above.  If you are interested in a particular volunteer role, use the drop down menu on the right of that particular role and choose the number of people you would like to register.  You can register multiple people if need be.  After choosing the number of registrants, scroll down and click the green "Register" button. You will first be asked to enter the contact information for each registrant.  You will also be asked to agree to the terms of a release waiver.  Please be sure to complete the entire process until you see a confirmation page. An email will be sent immediately to confirm your volunteer registration on the website and then another email will be sent confirming the shifts you selected, including dates, shift times and locations. If you do not receive these emails, contact us immediately.

HOUSEKEEPING RULES:

  • Dress Code: If working indoors, volunteers should wear the volunteer t-shirt that is provided to them with comfortable pants (nothing torn or with holes) and comfortable shoes. If you have not yet received a shirt, please wear a clean top without advertising.
  • If working outdoors, please dress for the weather. Remember, the event goes on snow, rain or shine. We want you to be as comfortable as possible.
  • Should you choose to work course set-up, we recommend you bring a flashlight (in case it's dark during set up

A COUPLE OF GUIDELINES:

  • SMILE AND HAVE FUN!  
  • Treat everyone (spectators, participants and other volunteers) with courtesy. If problems occur, please contact a LAM staff member. We are there to assist you. Patience is always a must.
  • At the end of your shift, if you have not been relieved, please tell the staff member you have been assigned to and stay in your area until a replacement comes. If this is the final or only shift of the event, please check with LAM staff before leaving your shift.
  • ATTENDANCE: We depend on your commitment to participate. Your presence and prompt arrival for your scheduled shifts are absolutely necessary. When you commit, you commit to the selected shift(s) and the entire shift time.
  • SHIFT CANCELLATION: In case of an emergency that prevents you from attending, please email the volunteer coordinator immediately.
  • WEATHER: Our events are rain, snow or shine, so please do not let weather stop you from coming – we still need you!
