Volunteer Guidelines

Please review the following volunteer guidelines. As Wineglass Weekend approaches, you will be contacted by your area captain who will provide you with additional instructions.

  • Volunteers must register online in advance.  Walk-ins will not be accepted.
  • Many volunteer areas require that you stand throughout your shift and work outside in any weather.  
  • Finish line setup and teardown require that you are able to lift up to 20 lbs.
  • If you are dealing directly with runners you will receive a volunteer t-shirt which should be worn during your entire shift. We will do our best to accommodate size requests. Volunteers not dealing directly with runners will not receive t-shirts.
  • Volunteers working in the finish line area will receive credentials which must be worn and visible during your entire shift. 
  • Please arrive on time for your shift and work your entire shift. If you need to leave early in the case of an emergency, please let your area captain know.
  • Please be sure to allow adequate time to park and get to your designated work area.
  • If you are unable to work your assigned shift, please contact your area captain or email us at tsmith@wineglassmarathon.com 
  • Do not bring children with you unless they are registered as volunteers.
  • All volunteers under age 16 must be under the guidance of a parent or adult. 
  • If you would like to volunteer with a child under age 12, you may request to work at a water station. Please email your request to wgmwaterstations@gmail.com.
  • Volunteers handing out champagne splits must be at least 18 years of age.
  • Pets are not permitted in any volunteer areas.
  • Our volunteers are a reflection of our community. Volunteers should conduct themselves in a professional manner at all times. Be respectful to runners and fellow volunteers by not smoking and not using profanity.
