Volunteers make everything possible.
Groups or individuals, we need all the help we can get! Volunteers are an integral part of producing successful events. Without the help of hundreds of volunteers at each event, we wouldn’t be able to continue producing these great events. Run Houston! Race Series events make for great opportunities to support your community, earn required services hours, fund-raise for your group or non profit, and build team work and camaraderie. If you have any questions please fill out the volunteer contact form.
Volunteer Group Donations
Large groups help to fill our volunteer voids quickly, especially during setup and tear-down. For this, we offer group donations as a way of saying thank you and urging everyone to return in the future. Each Run Houston! event has $1,500 allocated to donate to volunteer groups. Over the past 7 years, we have donated over $50,000 to local groups and non profits for volunteering at the event. Join us today!
Eligibility - Only groups/clubs/teams that follow these steps will be eligible for donations.
Step #1 - Contact the Volunteer Coordinator via the volunteer contact form
Step #2 - Have all group members signup online
Step #3 - Work all designated shifts, following all instructions given by Volunteer and race site Coordinators
Donation Rules - Below is how we determine donation amounts given post race. Please keep in mind this is volunteer work and was not meant to be "paid." These are donations meant as a thank you for helping at our event.
Up to a total $9,000 is available for group volunteer donations each year. $1,500-$3,000 is available per event (size of event dictates the amount available). Once a team/group/club/organization hits 10 volunteer shifts worked they get $10 per shift worked. For example if 16 volunteers from a group signed up and completed 16 shifts they would receive a check for $160 for their group.
Checks will be mailed once volunteer numbers and hours are verified. Please allow 4-6 weeks for check delivery. Those that don’t follow the instructions provided by the volunteer coordinator will not be counted toward’s group totals.
