Volunteers are essential to the success of any great event. They are vital in providing a safe, organized and fun race. It will take over 100 volunteers to ensure the safety, accuracy, fun and the highest level of organization necessary to produce the Blue Needs You 8K and Kids Fun Run event. Volunteers are needed to help at packet pick up, as course marshals, to distribute water at the aid stations, and in many other areas. Volunteers must be at least 18 years of age.

What’s In It For Me?

All of our volunteers will receive:

  • An official Blue Needs You 8K Volunteer Shirt (we recommend sizing up your tee to go over outerwear if the weather is chilly).
  • Breakfast and refreshments prior to and post race.
  • The opportunity to be a part of a unique and fun event and support Code Blue Saratoga.

Companies and Groups Welcome
