VolRUNteer With Your Group

You can help your non-profit group and help the race at the same time!

In exchange for your help on race day, September 6, 2021 we will make a donation on your behalf to your organization for each registered Volunteer that works. Each group has one or several specific jobs so your whole group can work together. You will receive a VolRUNteer t-shirt, goodies, and front row seat to the 2021 FORTitude 10K.

Start by registering your group at: GROUP LEADER APPLICATION. Our team will then follow-up with registration instructions for your entire group.
