Registered volunteers with receive an email race week with information regarding where to park (if assigned at expo, start or finish), where to check in and volunteer instructions (water station volunteers).

  • Volunteers must register online in advance. Check our FAQ section for age restrictions.
  • Volunteers under the age of 18 will need to have their parent/guardian agree to the online volunteer waiver.
  • If you need to cancel or switch shifts, you will need to email [email protected] at least 2 weeks prior.
  • Plan to arrive 5-10 minutes prior to your assigned time to allow time to park, walk to volunteer check in, and sign in.
  • Please do not bring a bag. Bags will not be permitted on the course, at the start area, or at the finish line. Small fanny packs are permitted but may be subject to search.
  • The Skechers Performance Los Angeles Marathon is not responsible for lost or stolen bags.
  • Please plan to volunteer for your entire assigned shift. We are not able to accommodate partial shifts. Leaving early may compromise the safety of the event. If you need to leave early in the case of an emergency, please check out with your captain.
  • Volunteers should check out with their volunteer coordinator/captain.
  • Volunteer uniform:
    • We will do our best to accommodate volunteer t-shirt size requests. Volunteers will receive a volunteer t-shirt to be worn over their clothing.
    • Volunteers should wear athletic, closed-toe shoes. No sandals or flip-flops.
  • Do not bring your children with you unless they are registered as volunteers. If you want to volunteer with your child, a water station may be your best option. Children under 18 must be registered by a parent or guardian; children ages under 13 must be accompanied and supervised by a parent/guardian. See FAQ’s for more details on age restrictions.
  • If you require paperwork to be signed for community service credit, you are responsible for bringing in a filled out form and asking the coordinator for their signature at the end of your volunteer shift.

We ask you to honor these standards of conduct when volunteering with the us:

  • Familiarize yourself with your surroundings and your volunteer area so you are able to answer questions. Volunteers are frequently asked for directions so it will be helpful to be informed. If you are unsure of something, direct questions to your volunteer coordinator or area captain.
  • Conduct yourself as a responsible, respectful, friendly representative of the Skechers Performance Los Angeles Marathon volunteer team
  • Do not participate in negativity; do not criticize or speak negatively about participants, volunteers or staff.
  • Do not use profane, harassing, or offensive language while volunteering, including social media
  • The use of drugs and alcohol are prohibited while volunteering
  • Follow the directions of your volunteer coordinator or area captain. If you are uncertain about something, ask.
  • If your conduct is disrespectful, dangerous, or causes conflict, you may be dismissed as a volunteer and will not be allowed return to participate as a volunteer
