NYCRUNS is excited to offer opportunities for both individuals and groups looking to be a part of the action at our flagship event on Sunday, April 23, 2023. This is a great opportunity to connect with and support the NYC running community, while earning either individual race credit or a donation for your favorite non-profit.

On race day, individual volunteer opportunities are available at the Start, Finish, and along the Course. Additionally, there are volunteer shifts available for the NYCRUNS Brooklyn Half Marathon Expo presented by adidas on Friday, April 21, 2023 and Saturday, April 22, 2023. Individual volunteers can receive up to $100 in race credit per volunteer shift.* Individuals interested in volunteering can learn more and sign up for their preferred shift(s) on the Volunteer page.

Volunteer groups of 10 or more people are eligible for a cash donation to any 501c3 of their choosing, with groups of 30 or more qualifying for up to $2,500. Final donation amounts will be processed based on the number of volunteers in attendance on Sunday, April 23, 2023. Groups of less than ten are encouraged to sign up for our individual volunteer opportunities.

Volunteer groups may be asked to assist at hydration stations along the course orĀ  within the Finish and Festival area. If you are part of an organization interested in volunteering with us, please have your group leader reach out to

*Race credit for individual volunteers varies depending on your shift and may be used to pay for up to 50% or $40 (whichever is greater) for any NYCRUNS-owned race. Race credit expires on Dec. 31, 2023.
