To Volunteer

The MMT would not be the quality event it is without the many volunteers who have given so much to the race and the runners. This page serves two functions. It recognizes some, but unfortunately not all, of the volunteers who will be there to help the runners this year. Additionally, this page serves as a place to help recruit and organize the volunteers.

Prior Year Volunteers

How to Volunteer: If you want to volunteer, please use the volunteer form. This form helps us keep track of your help. Please indicate in the Comment section any aid station or job preference. We cannot guarantee your preference but we try to be as accommodating as possible. If you want to help with course marking, mark that on the form. For questions about course marking see below.

Aid Station Captains: One of the most critical jobs is that of aid station captain. It's challenging but very rewarding. We need to fill Visitors Center, Veach Gap... that we know of so far.

*1: Set up consists of arriving either Thursday night (Bob Fabia provides us with a great dinner and breakfast!) or Friday morning and doing whatever needs to be done to get ready. This is a fluid job and does not require any heavy lifting. Sometimes it means hanging out till the next emergency.

*2: Traffic / Parking is sitting under a tent and telling drivers where to park. Starts at noon on Friday.

*3: Packet Pickup is a public position. It requires that you assist in the organization of the packet pickup area, prepare for check-in and distribution of numbers and swag. It can also be considered the general "concierge" area. (ha ha!). We also organize volunteer swag so it can be delivered to the aid stations on Saturday.

*4: Friday Dinner is organized by the caterer but we need additional people to help serve, facilitate, then break down the tables and reconfigure for the weekend.

*5: Sunday is an easy job and the only hard part is getting volunteers. It doesn't last long and the more the easier. At 4:00, during the Awards Ceremony, we start breaking down and moving supplies and equipment to the "garagemahal" 100 yards for the finish line.. The Retreat House kitchen (volunteer HQ and bunk place) is cleaned up and shut down. After the awards ceremony any drop bags left in the Drop Bag tent are dissembled and their contents are distributed as appropriate. Chairs and tables in big tent are stacked in a central location (easy), trash bags are collected and taken to the camps trash area.

Course Marking

Trail Marking, Checking, Sweeping


MMT has a great reputation for course marking due to the numerous volunteers who help hang markings and clear the course each year. If you want to have some fun, get some good training miles and help us with this important task, there are ample opportunities. Below are tasks, meeting times and additional information about this year's marking. If you would like to volunteer, please contact the course marking coordinator Kevin Bligan at Please do not just show up race weekend without coordinating at least a week prior to the race.
