Calling all volunteers! Those who enjoyed the spectacle of the Winter Olympic Games were the ones that participated as volunteers. You now have the same opportunity to be part of the team for the Alaska Airlines Salt Lake City Marathon, Half Marathon, 10K Skate, 5K, Kid’s Marathon and Bike Tour. Not only will you get one of the “best seats in the house” to watch the race, you’ll be able to get involved with your neighbors and show support for these amazing athletes!

Cheer & Entertainment Zone Competition

The Alaska Airlines Salt Lake City Marathon will be hosting the third annual cheer and entertainment zone competition at this year’s race! Create excitement for the runners along the marathon course while promoting your organization and supporting cancer research!

Each group will be challenged to create a theme for their station. Once the theme gets approved, it’s time to let the fun begin! Break out those banners, balloons, music and noisemakers because the louder, crazier and more creative, the better. Decorations, costumes, music and props are highly encouraged!

Your group must fulfill our time allotment for entertainment zones as assigned by our volunteer coordinator. The theme must be pre-approved one week prior to the race. Please note, the cost of theme supplies, set up and clean up are the sole responsibilities of the group or individual.

How to win?
There are two $500 prizes to be awarded this year. At the end of the event, athletes will vote on the best cheer and entertainment zone in our post-event survey. In addition, race personnel will select a winner. The winners will be announced one week after the event via social media and email. We’re excited to see what kind of stations you come up with for this year! Make sure you’re memorable so you can rack up the votes!
