Thank you for your interest in volunteering at the Surgical Artistry Modesto Marathon!

Come out and volunteer for one of the largest running events in the Central Valley.You’ll have fun, meet great people and enjoy the thrill of victory without having to break a sweat. The success to having a quality event is the volunteers.

This is the perfect opportunity to impact the lives of many runners and walkers while creating lasting memories for participants.It takes more than 700 volunteers to host an event of this magnitude and without the help of the volunteers this could not be possible. Last year we had participants from all over the United States.

Because of our awesome volunteers we were able to assist in getting many runners to their goals, qualifying for the Boston Marathon or accomplishing a personal best.

Feedback from our past participants describes our volunteers as polite, enthusiastic, awesome, helpful, motivating and knowledgeable.Got questions? Contact our volunteer coordinator at volunteer@modestomarathon.com.
