Come volunteer with us!



Our volunteers are key to the success of each of our events. The Bass Pro Shops Fitness Series would not happen without the efforts of our volunteers which are mostly coordinated through one of our Official Charities, Big Brothers Big Sisters.

Bass Pro Shops Outdoor Fitness Festival

Volunteer Responsibilities

Our volunteers perform lots of duties including: registration, shirt distribution, finish line greeters, finisher awards distribution, aid station workers, set-up and take down for events, traffic control, communication aids, finish line food preparation and server and more.

Aid Stations

Interested in providing aid station support through your business, club, neighborhood association, group or even a big family? We need your help.

We would love to have you out on the course supporting our runners.

Course Entertainment

Additionally, we need entertainment such as music, dancing, clowns and so forth to encourage the runners participating in the marathon and half marathon.

Big Brothers Big Sisters

The mission of Big Brothers Big Sisters is to enhance a child's self-esteem and outlook for the future by facilitating a one to one relationship with an adult role model and to also provide financial assistance for personal and scholastic needs.
