Why you should Volunteer.

We will need hundreds of volunteers (some on Friday September 30 and Saturday October 1 and a lot on Sunday October 2) to conduct our inaugural Woodrow Wilson Bridge Half Marathon, beginning at Mount Vernon and ending at National Harbor. No experience necessary, just a willingness to help out and a commitment to showing up.

We appreciate our volunteers. Be a part of something huge and energizing, guaranteed to be a staple on the East Coast racing schedule. We couldn’t pull off such a phenomenal event without volunteers.

You won’t go away empty-handed. On top of the great satisfaction you will receive from helping others and having fun doing it, you'll be getting something extra for your efforts:

  • 2011 official Woodrow Wilson Bridge Half Marathon Volunteer T-Shirt
  • Guaranteed entry into the 2012 race
  • Community service credit, if needed
