CARMEL, Ind. (March 23, 2022) – Event organizers are seeking volunteers and course entertainment for the Carmel Marathon Weekend, the largest running event of the year in Carmel, Indiana. The 12th annual event is expected to bring more than 3,500 participants to the city on Friday, April 8 for the Fitness Expo and Saturday, April 9 for the running and walking events.

Race weekend volunteer opportunities include the Fitness Expo packet pickup, gear check, guest services, transportation, aid stations and more. Volunteers will receive an official Carmel Marathon Weekend t-shirt, complimentary snacks and refreshments, and an invitation to the volunteer appreciation post-race party.

Groups, such as teams, companies, and civic organizations, are also encouraged to volunteer at water stations to help support the local community. Groups will receive a listing or logo in the participant guide and event website, the opportunity to place a banner at their water station, and a $150 donation to the nonprofit organization of their choice.

Event staff are also finalizing spots for course entertainment on race day. Musicians of all types are encouraged to contact organizers for a placement along the race course, including the Indiana Vein Specialists Cheer Zone at Midtown. Entertainment individuals and groups will receive recognition on the event website and participant guide. Past entertainment has included rally bands, solo guitarists, DJs, rock bands, and country music artists.

“Volunteers are really the heart and soul of race weekend,” said Todd Oliver, race director for the Carmel Marathon Weekend. “It’s been fun seeing volunteers come back year after year because they enjoy cheering on our participants at an aid station along the course or handing out medals at the finish. As runners know, that extra bit of confidence or hearing a fun song really gets you through the next mile. We truly couldn’t do this without them!”

The 2022 Carmel Marathon Weekend will host the largest percentage of out-of-state participants in its history. The full marathon has sold out for the second year in a row, with limited spots remaining in the half marathon. The Fitness Expo has also sold out, with more than 30 vendors planning to be on site at Carmel High School for packet pickup.
