We Can Use Your Help

Volunteering is fun 


it’s fun 

Pulling off a fun, flawless event requires the help of dozens of enthusiastic and hard-working volunteers. No experience is necessary and there are several exciting volunteer opportunities from which to choose. All volunteers receive an official race crew shirt, race goodie bag, community service hours, and the appreciation and adoration of our participants and first responders.

Volunteering is more fun with a friend so grab a few and sign up today to support the San Diego Fire Rescue 5K & Kids Run.
