volunteer opportunities

The Miwok 100K could not take place without many wonderful volunteers who mark the course prior to race day, prepare food for and work at the aid stations and the start/finish, and help remove the ribbons and clean up afterwards.

If you’d like to be indispensable (and have a lot of fun without running all that way), e-mail Tia at miwok100k@gmail.com or Florencia at gasconflorencia@gmail.com and let us know when you’re available. We’ll post a volunteer link [here] with detailed information in January, or email us now for your choice of spots! For your time, you receive a Volunteer T-shirt, snacks, and all the camaraderie you can handle.
  • Eight hours of volunteer work at Miwok fulfills the WS100 and other 100-miler service requirements.
  • Eight hours of volunteer work at the Miwok 100K also gets you an extra ticket in the following year’s Miwok entry lottery.
If you’re running the race, consider asking a friend or two to come along as volunteers. You’ll all have fun, and you won’t have to drive yourself all the way home after running 62 miles!
