The 2017 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!

Volunteers are the backbone of our race. It could not take place without them. See for yourself how much fun being part of our volunteer team can be!

We are still in need of volunteers for this year’s race, especially course intersection team volunteers.

Course team training schedule

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. These positions 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 training schedule

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 volunteer@illinoismarathon.com if your organization is interested in volunteering. Training required for some positions (not all).

We are so grateful to Einstein Bros. Bagels for sponsoring our official volunteer drawstring backpack. As a bonus to all volunteers, once you receive your volunteer bag, bring it with you to any of the three Einstein Bros. Bagel locations (West University, Prospect, or the Illini Union) and receive a 10% discount on your order. Every time you eat there. For the rest of 2017!
