The 15th Annual Umstead Trail Marathon is on March 3, 2018, and we need your help. Why should you volunteer? 

  • You make a difference being out there. The runners consistently praise the Umstead Marathon for having some of the best volunteers around. A smile and a little bit of cheering goes a long way.
  • The Umstead Marathon race has given over $28K to the Umstead Coalition since its inception. It also provides funds for the Carolina Godiva Track Club throughout the year.
  • It's fun! You get to enjoy being in the great outdoors with other like-minded people.

We need over 100 volunteers to put on a successful race. This is the Clubs largest fundraiser. To keep membership costs and event costs low, we rely on the proceeds from the Umstead Marathon. Please consider spending March 3, 2018 in beautiful Umstead Park supporting the runners, the Umstead Coalition, and the Carolina Godiva Track Club.
