Thank you for your interest in the 2019 Fort Smith Marathon Volunteer Program.

The Fort Smith Marathon is a volunteer-driven organization. We offer more than 700 volunteer and leadership opportunities each year to inspire giving, personal growth, and community. We cannot run without you!

You will meet amazing people, have a great time, and enjoy the thrill of winning without breaking a sweat. Without the help of our volunteers, our race would not be possible.


Besides the satisfaction of knowing you are helping countless individuals make their dream a reality, you will receive the 2019 official race volunteer t-shirt, and earn volunteer credit hours and the pride of knowing you helped others accomplish their goals and make it to the finish.


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

  • Volunteers must register in advance with Kerrie Tabor at kerrie.tabor@uafs.edu.
