Thank you for your interest in volunteering at the Bank of America Shamrock Shuffle 8K! Volunteers serve in many ways both on race day and in the days leading up to the event. Be a part of Chicago’s annual kick off for the local running season and support thousands of runners by volunteering at the Shamrock Shuffle!
Group leader application
Volunteer groups are needed to distribute t-shirts, check gear and organize start corrals, among many other vital roles, and that process starts with you! Group leaders are responsible for recruiting volunteers, sharing assignment information, relaying registration instructions and keeping their group on task and organized on the day of the event. Learn more about becoming a volunteer group leader!
Key volunteer application
As we get ready to welcome thousands of runners race weekend, help is needed to coordinate operational efforts and manage the dozens of volunteer groups that will donate their time and enthusiasm race weekend.
