That’s right, we have the coolest volunteer program in town. Volunteer for one of our races and receive a $50 credit to be used towards any race owned by NYCRUNS as well as select client events. You can also volunteer for packet pickups and grab an easy $25 in race credit.
While the default credit amount is $50 for raceday volunteer shifts, certain events may entitle you to more; if so it will be clear on the signup page for that race. Credits can be used for more than one race. You can also save up credits to register for more expensive races like the Brooklyn Marathon. Worried about keeping track of your balance? Just log into My Account on our homepage to find out what you’ve got saved up in credit.
UPDATE! As of Fall 2016, NYCRUNS Volunteers can now opt to direct a $25 donation from NYCRUNS to one of our Cause Partners in lieu of receiving race credit themselves.
This allows us to do more for our Cause Partners while giving volunteers more options and opportunities to give back to their communities. In order to participate, simply choose a Cause Partner from the dropdown menu on the volunteer signup page and NYCRUNS will donate $25 directly to that organization upon confirmed completion of your shift.
