Volunteer With Us!

Volunteers are crucial to the success of any great event. They are essential to the safety, accuracy, fun, and the highest level of organization necessary to produce the Life Time Chicago Half Marathon & 5K.

Volunteers are needed to help with the packet pickup at the Expo, distribute water at the aid stations, hand out finishers medals and in many other areas that make up race weekend. Volunteers must be at least 13 years of age. All minors must have adult supervision with them at all times.


Now is your chance to take part in welcoming all of the athletes that will be joining us for this amazing, world-class event. All volunteers will receive:

  • A commemorative Race Crew T-shirt to celebrate this year’s event
  • Ability to complete community service hours
  • Meet new friends or business contacts
  • Create new interests or hobbies
  • Fulfillment of helping another individuals accomplish their goal or dream
  • And of course, the good feeling one gets when helping a worthy cause

*2023 volunteer shirt is being displayed.

Additionally, all volunteers will receive a ton of appreciation for supporting the Chicago running community and our participants.


Part of a group of at least 10 people? The Life Time Chicago Half Marathon also offers great opportunities to work as a team and have fun doing it to support the race. All large groups should email our volunteer coordinator directly. The Chicago Half Marathon will work with you and your group to ensure you have all the details you need and that you get there without a problem.
