A Special Thank You to our Past Volunteers!

The Surf City USA® Marathon is supported by over 2,000 volunteers and 100 area coordinators each year. Without the outstanding support of dedicated community minded groups and individuals like you – the event simply wouldn’t happen.

Our fabulous volunteer organizations provide service at the expo, registration, the water stations, the start line, the finish line, they hand out medals, they keep the venue clean, and they do it because they love to support their beautiful community. Volunteers –YOU ARE AWESOME!

We encourage all participants and fans to support our volunteer organizations. Click on a logo to visit their some of their web sites:
