The Lakeland Runners Club Events is a 100%-volunteer-led organization.
Each year, volunteers’ selfless work enables the LRC to hold safe, motivating, and community-building running activities.
LRC race day volunteers donate over 2,500 hours of time annually, contributing the equivalent of $66,500* to the LRC mission to promote running and fitness and change people’s lives in a positive way.
Thank you for contributing to our mission !

Volunteers for all LRC events must be at least 18 years of age unless they are under the supervision of their parent/guardian.
Volunteerism is at the heart of everything we do as a club, and we want to foster that spirit of giving back among the youth of our community. There are opportunities for minors to assist and earn service hours at our races with their parent/guardian. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org to coordinate these assignments.
All volunteers are encouraged to complete Safe Sport Act Training, a free on-line course to help kids participating in youth sports safe from abuse.
Volunteer positions for our races will be available at least one month prior to race day. Slot selection and registration will be managed through the race registration platform RunSignUp.
Volunteer assignments will be scheduled on a first come, first serve basis. Schedules are always subject to change due to event needs. Although every effort will be made to accommodate your selection, the volunteer team captain reserves the right to schedule volunteers based on event needs.
