You don’t have to run it to be a part of it.
Our marathon is amazing, because our volunteers are amazing.
As a community organized and community-wide event there are opportunities for everyone to be involved – and most people are, either as organizers, volunteers, providers of goods and services, cheer leaders, or runners. But we are always looking for more good volunteers to take the load off those who have already stepped up.
All volunteers who help out with the Bay of Fundy Marathon and 10K will receive a T-shirt and are invited to join the street celebration on Sunday afternoon.
If you would like to volunteer yourself or your group, please contact either of:
