Runners say that more than anything, it is the volunteers that make the race special. Volunteers keep them going and make them smile. And, it’s no secret that volunteers have at least as much fun as the runners!
The Bend Marathon and Half welcomes individuals who want to volunteer and we're proud to support local charities and schools who want to volunteer in groups of 8 or more to raise money for the organizations that make Bend such a special place.
“My daughter and I ran the race together and we thought the volunteers were the best we have ever seen..... Besides being helpful they were FUN with their words & antics.”
“Best group of volunteers of any race I've done... They were at every turn and well identified and helpful. Thank you!!!”
