The Delaware Marathon™ Running Festival would not be possible without the support of the hundreds of volunteers who come out, rain or shine, to support this great cause. Because of you, we are able to donate generously to our official race beneficiaries and our other support organizations.



A variety of Saturday and Sunday options and shifts are available: from packet-pickup; to course marshals; to water stations! We will use over 500 volunteers on race weekend, so we definitely need your help!

If you have a charity based group who is willing to help us out, we may be able to make a small donation back to your group in exchange for your service to the Delaware Marathon™.  Contact Mary Kreke at mary@corrigansports.com  to discuss.

Music groups, high school bands, cheerleaders, drill teams and entertainers are encouraged to join the fun. We are always looking for race course entertainment.  Call or email us for more details and availability.
