Missoula Marathon needs more volunteers this year

Posted: Updated:
MISSOULA -

The 12th Annual Missoula Marathon is back again in the Garden City.

The races will start next weekend, but the marathon is in need of some volunteers.

Next Saturday (July 14th)  and Sunday (July 15th) the Missoula Marathon will start their races.

Like every year, all activities will take place at Caras Park in downtown Missoula.

Tony Banovich with Missoula Marathon told ABC FOX Montana at least 6,000 people will be running in the marathon.

 With that many people expected to participate, they need more volunteers.

So far they have about 500 volunteers but having a hundred additional volunteers would be nice.

"We could still use probably well over a hundred maybe two hundred volunteers. And some of those are things if we don't have them... can we make it by? Yes! But it is a little less safe and missing out on a few things. The more we can get the better,” said Tony Banovich, Race Director of Missoula Marathon.

They need volunteers for the first aid stations and people to work as course monitors and some others to help out with setting up the event.

Keep in mind, if you are a volunteer you will get a free shirt and be invited to a post event volunteer party at Big Sky Brewing.
