We are always in search of Volunteers!

If you are not planning to run in the LewisGale Half Marathon or Virginia's Blue Ridge 8K but want to contribute in another way, we have many opportunities for you to help. We are always in search of people looking to help us make this race a success.

We hope that you will join us October 10th, 2020 as a volunteer and join the army of citizens who contribute to put this race together.  For runners and visitors it’s the volunteers that help ensure a safe and fun event.
