Run For Free/Volunteer

Want to save money on entry fees?
Either bring a volunteer with you to the race you're running in, or volunteer ahead of time at another Rainshadow Running Race or Trailwork Party, and you can earn a FREE entry for that race or another race of your choosing. There are even a few volunteer roles that allow you to run the same race for which you're volunteering, but those are limited, so inquire with our volunteer coordinators (contact info below) ASAP.

Please email Matt & Kerri Stebbins, our Volunteer Coordinators [or have your volunteer email them], at

Some of the volunteer roles that are usually available at each race include:
  • Pre-race Parking
  • Runner Check-in
  • Finish-line Set-up
  • Finish/Timing
  • Aid Station Captain/Staff
  • Post-race Food
  • Course Sweeper [all distances]
  • Post-race Clean-up 
Another way to get to run a race for FREE is to donate (or arrange the donation of) goods or services to be used as prizes or awards for our runners. Email us at if this is something you're interested in.
