Rock 'n' Roll Volunteers Needed

Volunteer for the Rock 'n' Roll Race Crew!

The Quinn Family Foundation Rock ‘n’ Roll St. Louis Marathon & 1/2 Half Marathon To Benefit Team Activities for Special Kids is rockin’ through your neighborhood October 24-27, 2013. Over 13,000 runners will race to the finish, but they won’t be the only ones out on the streets of St. Louis. Rock 'n' Roll St. Louis also features live bands playing every mile, as well as a post-race headliner concert. It’s a 26.2 mile block party!

Volunteering for the Race Crew means you will not only be supporting thousands of aspiring runners and walkers, but also our numerous charity fundraising partners.
