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!

Sign up here to volunteer: http://volunteer.cvnl.org/aem/general/event/?doc_id=3908
