Volunteer for this event

The Famous Canadian Beer Run
Toronto’s Beer-iest 5KM Fun Run

Volunteer Duties

Volunteers will be given a crew t-shirt, specific and clear duties, a volunteer captain, water, and a free beverage of your choice to be consumed post duties.  Please read through each duty and select which ones work best for you. Keep in mind changing duties leading up to the event can be a challenge for our staff so please be sure to select those that fit your schedule. Minimum age to volunteer is 16.


For most participants you will be the first face-to-face contact runners will have for the event. Your friendliness, helpfulness and patience will form that critical first impression. You will be asked to do two main tasks; handout race kits and event specific t-shirts. Race kit pick-up will take place Thursday, September 14th from 4 p.m. - 7 p.m., Friday, September 15th from 4 p.m. - 7 p.m., Saturday, September 16th from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. and on race day from 9 a.m. - 12 p.m.

SET UP & TEAR DOWN (pick one or do both!)

The Set Up and Tear Down Crew will be responsible for setting up and breaking down tables and chairs, flags, tents, and signage to various locations at the event. Crew members should be prepared for physical work.


This position is also the first point of contact for participants and the public, making it imperative that you be both energetic and efficient! Your duties will consist of the following: Sign in participants who have registered online and registering walk-up participants. 


If you are energetic and want to be in the action - this is position is for you! You will need to be set up and in place 30 minutes before the start of the first wave and stay until the last runner is through - roughly a 3 hour duty. We need people to keep cups filled and handing them out to thirsty runners en route while cheering them on! Endless high-fives welcome!


Your number one responsibility as a Course Marshal is to ensure the runners have a safe run and ensure that no vehicular traffic (other than official vehicles) enters the course. You will be placed at specific locations on the course that are key for the race.


High five those crossing the finish line while giving out official finisher steins! This is a very busy area at times and requires standing for long periods of time without shelter.
