Bib & T-shirt pick-up

If you are part of a team, please contact your team leader to first verify that your team leader will pick up your bib & t-shirt for you. Team leaders, please identify a place or landmark to meet your group on race day.

If you are not part of a team, you can pickup your race bib & t-shirt in the 2 days before the race. I'm accepting appointments Thurs 5/5 & Friday 5/6 every half hour at CVNL (65 Mitchell Blvd., Suite 101, San Rafael, CA 94903). Please email Molly Schmidt at mschmidt@cvnl.org and include a list of everyone you are collect bibs for. 

Or, if you pre-registered for the Bay Area Human Race, bibs can be picked up the morning of the race at Will Call from 7am-8am. 

Volunteer for the Human Race

Volunteer for the largest collaborative fundraising event — the CVNL Bay Area Human Race.

It takes a village to make the Bay Area Human Race run smoothly. We are looking for over 100 volunteers to help us with many race related activities. We need volunteers on the two days prior to the event and of course, on race day.

  • Distribute bibs and t-shirts
  • Register runners
  • Manage water and refreshment stations
  • Lead the children's races
  • Set-up, break-down and more!
