How to Volunteer

We need your help! The Ohio River Road Runners Club is an all-volunteer organization and we need over 300 volunteers in order to put on the Turkey Trot. Each volunteer will receive a specially-designed volunteer shirt as well as the praise and thanks of our runners & walkers!

To Volunteer: Please fill out the form below! We will get back to you one week before the race with details about your volunteer job(s), but in the meantime, feel free to send us any questions you have and we’ll answer them the best we can!
