The 2016 Christie Clinic Illinois Marathon will require nearly 3,000 volunteer team members for a safe, fun event for the runners. In addition to some fun in the C-U community, each team member receives a Christie Clinic Illinois Marathon t-shirt and drawstring backpack!
We hope to fill all volunteer spots by March 30th to allow adequate time to prepare our volunteers. Of course, register early to guarantee your favorite position!

Course Intersection Teams

The Course Intersection Team members are the beating heart of our volunteer team. These team members enhance the runners' race course experience by monitoring intersections for potential traffic and/or pedestrian-related issues. This position will also ensure that runners stay on the right course as well as provide encouragement and support to the runners. Training will be provided prior to the race.

General Volunteer Teams

The General Volunteer Team consists of all non-Course Intersection jobs, including Expo and Race Day positions. Starting Tuesday of race week, we have a multitude of jobs and shift times available. Note that many volunteer teams are not listed, as they are fulfilled by organizations. Email if your organization is interested in volunteering.
