Fort Bragg Family and Morale, Welfare and Recreation are in need of more than 1,000 volunteers for the All American Marathon and Mike to Mike Half Marathon on March 22.

Volunteers can help out in many different capacities during the marathon, from aiding in setup to manning water stations and helping runners as course marshals. Other volunteer positions include Post Race Festival attendants, to include food tent attendant, volunteer check-in, information tent attendant, trash detail, and a ‘Jack of all Trades’ floater. Volunteers can also be Gear Check Attendants, who will collect, organize, and distribute bags of gear runners want access to when they finish their race.

 Volunteers play an important part in motivating the runners and maintaining the flow of the race.

In addition to this unique and rewarding experience, volunteers will receive a free t-shirt and volunteer hours. Students can also volunteer and receive credit for community service.

Volunteers will be stationed at various locations, mainly Festival Park in downtown Fayetteville and the Main Post Parade Field at Fort Bragg. Volunteers are asked to arrive at 7 a.m. on March 22 in time for race preparation.

Volunteers must be 12 years of age on race day, and if under the age of 16, must be accompanied by a parent or guardian.

You can sign up to volunteer now on and help make the upcoming race day a success for the runners, their Families, Fort Bragg and the city of Fayetteville.
