During the Marathon Weekend we recruit over 300 volunteers. This great event would not be possible without their help.  Volunteers play a very important role in making any event a success and the PEI Marathon is no exception. This year we anticipate a need for 300 to 350 volunteers to ensure that we continue to facilitate a world-class event in true style.

We require volunteers for the following areas:
  • Registration (checking in participants and handing out bibs and shirts to participants)
  • Nutrition Tables (handing out liquids to participants on course)
  • Finish Line (handing out medals, directing participants through nutrition tent, ensure only participants are in finish line area)
  • Course Marshal (directing participants along the route and monitoring participant safety)
  • Expo (set up Expo and directing participants through Expo)
  • Floaters (includes packing lunches, unwrapping medals, and any tasks assigned by the committee)


We encourage you to get together and work as a team at a water station or as a course marshal. You could form groups from:

  • Work Groups
  • Schools
  • Community
  • Friends


  • Wear your FREE volunteer shirt
  • Be aware of your own safety and the safety of all the runners, walkers, and spectators
  • Encourage the runners: “Good Job!” “Keep it Going”
  • Be friendly and courteous to all and remember you are representing the PEI Marathon as well as Prince Edward Island.
  • Be attentive. Listen to what people are saying as we value all feedback
  • Communicate any concerns with your chairpersons

Volunteer Registration coming soon!
