Mass Mayhem Morning Volunteer: Select this option if you’d like to help Mass Mayhem from 7:00am – 11am on the day of the race. Once you arrive at the race, we’ll assign you a position. You’ll then be refunded your registration fee and will be able to run in a later wave (11:30am-12:00pm) or at a future event. Simply let us know after you finish your shift and we’ll get you into the wave of your choice!
Mass Mayhem Afternoon Volunteer: Select this option if you’d like to help out Mass Mayhem from 10:30am – 2:30pm on the day of the race. Once you arrive at the race, we’ll assign you a position, and you can take your place at the start line for the heat of your choice. Afternoon volunteers can run in the first wave (9:00) by simply registering on the website. You will pay the regular fee but we will refund your registration fee immediately after you finish your afternoon volunteer shift!
