We Need Volunteers Like You!


Registered volunteers who help at a race earn a reserved place in a future marathon! Volunteer to LEAD and recruit at least 3 volunteers (3 plus you) for an aid station and receive 1 transferable entry for the following year!

Hosting the Tunnel Marathons requires a lot of work on race day and we couldn’t do it without our volunteers. Registered volunteers who help out with a race even receive a reserved place in one of the three races in the following year at general cost. This means that when the race is full, up until six weeks before the race date, you get to sign-up!

Meet Our Volunteer Coordinator:
Jennifer Shaffer













Jenn has joined our Tunnel Marathons Team this year as our Volunteer Coordinator. She started running during college and has run 2 marathons and 19 half marathons since. As a runner, Jenn knows how crucial volunteers are to the race experience and is excited to work with them to help give our runners the support they need to finish strong!
