Volunteer with Achilles During the NYC Marathon!
Sunday Nov. 3 at Achilles' Finishers Reunion Area
This is where the excitement is!
Once our awesome athletes, gregarious guides and fabulous fundraisers complete the 26.2-mile course, they come to this area to relax, retrieve their belongings, and find their friend or family member to accompany them home. You will be there to congratulate them and see they have what they need.
Two shifts are available as follows...
10:30 am to 3:30 pm
1:30 pm to 6:30 pm
Duties range from transferring athletes from handcycles to wheelchairs, assisting athletes into vans, escorting them through the maze, security, crowd control, baggage set-up and retrieval. Van drivers are especially needed!
If you can spare five hours of your time on the big day, please sign on with NYRR to volunteer by October 10. Instructions on sign up here.
Large groups are especially welcome, but those under 18-years of age must have a parent or guardian complete the online registration and be accompanied by a responsible adult.
The Achilles Finishers Reunion Area is located on West 72nd St at Central Park West. It's best to approach from Columbus Avenue. Come to the volunteers table, sign in, don a safety vest and be part of the Achilles marathon experience!
