Volunteer Opportunities for Music City Marathon

Your Help is needed!
Be a volunteer for the 8th Annual Country Music Marathon & 1/2 Marathon...
Volunteers have the opportunity to help out at the Health & Fitness Expo on Thursday, April 26 and April 27. This is the registration portion of the marathon where all 23,000 participants pick up their bib numbers, t-shirts, shop at various running/sports booths, and buy souvenirs.
The 8th annual Country Music Marathon & 1/2 Marathon will take place on Saturday, April 28, 2007. With the event’s popularity continuing to grow, we are anticipating 23,000 runners to participate, and a total of 4,000 volunteers will be needed to successfully stage the event. The event not only gives Nashville positive national exposure, but it also raises millions of dollars for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society through its Team In Training program.

For their time and effort, every volunteer will receive a Race Crew T-shirt, goodie bag and free ticket to the post-race concert at the Gaylord Entertainment Center on Saturday, April 28, 2007. In addition, each volunteer's name will be entered into the Race Crew Appreciation Drawing with a chance to win two round-trip tickets to any Southwest Airlines destination AND a two-night stay at a selected partner hotel. All volunteers at the Health and Fitnesss Expo will have their name entered into the drawing TWICE!!

This is a great volunteer experience and a good way to give back to the community. We are confident that everyone will enjoy his or her volunteer experience. If you or your group is interested in volunteering, you can find out more and also apply online at
