VOLUNTEER

Volunteers Make This Race Happen

The Lincoln Marathon and Half Marathon is a success every year due to the 100’s of volunteers within our community who give their time and effort to make the race a success.  Even though the race is organized by the Lincoln Track Club, the Lincoln Track Club is also an all volunteer organization.

We’d love to have you be apart of our team.  Please head on over to our Contact Page and fill out the form with the subject of Volunteering so that your information gets over to our volunteer coordinator.
