Pacific Coast Running Festival


This event requires a ton of volunteers so if you can help recruit friends, family, spouses, companies, non-profits, churches, or sports teams to help that would be extremely helpful. They will get front row seats to all the action! Athletes can also volunteer to earn race credits for future races. Compete one day and volunteer another!

In addition, our events offer a terrific fundraising opportunity for a club/organization (non-profit) and a fun, inspiring way to encourage and support the athletes that participate in these events. Under our fundraising program, $20-$25 will be donated to the non-profit organization for each volunteer 4-6+hour shift depending on our needs. All the volunteers will also get a snack, gift, goody bag and be able to enjoy the post-race festivities.

Race participants can also volunteer in return for race credits for future events! We love having athletes as volunteers because you totally get it and know how to take of our athletes!

We typically need about 100 volunteers per day for most events with tasks such as water stations, course marshals, food prep, finish line, & set up and clean up. Pacific Coast, because of the special nature of this event, requires about 800 volunteers for the weekend!

We work with a number of Central Oregon non-profits who volunteer in return for a donation to their organization. If you or your non-profit organization would like more information about how to volunteer for Pacific Coast, please click on the link above, complete the information below or email marla@whyracingevents.com

Remember, there’s no way we could host this event without the help and support of our volunteer team. Many have dedicated hours and hours of time to this event to assure the safety of our athletes and make the event more enjoyable. So be extra-nice to anyone helping out. Thank them as often as possible because we have been told we have the best volunteers ever and we want them to all come back next year!
