Volunteer for a Race

Our events truly could not happen without our volunteers! There are many ways to get involved. Volunteering with Western Reserve Racing is the perfect way to give back, connect with your community, and get inspired before your next race!  We are recruiting new Team Leaders who will organize groups of volunteers to work at our races. Volunteer groups could come from youth groups, schools, service clubs, athletic teams, church groups, or companies. Volunteering with WRR is fun!  Contact us today and we will find the right fit for you or your group.

Volunteer Rewards Program
Western Reserve Racing appreciates race volunteers and we want to show it!  In addition to race day fun, the following rewards benefits are given to volunteers who help out at our events:

  • Volunteers will receive a $5 race discount for each event in which they volunteer.  These discounts can be used separately or stacked on top of each other for greater discounts.  Please email Joe@westernreserveracing.com to take advantage of earned discounts.
  • Volunteers will receive an entry for an awesome monthly swag drawing.  One entry is given per volunteer assignment.  If a volunteer signs up to work two assignments at the same event, that is good for two entries!  Winners will be announced on Facebook the following month.
  • Some volunteer opportunities come with specific benefits.  For example, sign up to help at the Akron Rubber Ducks 5k and receive a ticket to the game following the race!
  • Current status of your volunteer rewards – Volunteer Credits

Volunteering on race day can be an exciting way to be involved in the local running scene and to make new friends.  Please consider joining us soon.
