Make a Difference with Our Series of Events


Don’t miss this chance to get one of the “best seats in the house” for the University of Utah Health Salt Lake City Marathon. Come join your neighbors while showing support for these amazing athletes.



Our volunteers are critical to the success of the University of Utah Health Salt Lake City Marathon. We make sure our volunteers have fun, are well-fed, plus you get to keep your premiere souvenir T-shirt. Every volunteer will have a few chances to win a gift certificate to the Salt Lake Running Company. Finally, we hope you’ll join us for the post-race ‘Thank You’ celebration. What are you waiting for?


Are you looking for a way to make new friends?  Are you fulfilled by being of service to others? Then we have something for you. We have volunteer opportunities available for several weeks leading up to the race, at the expo the day before the race, the day of the race and even after the race.  We are flexible to your availability .



We encourage groups of all sizes! Click on the registration button below, and simply create a group or join an existing group. As an added incentive—as if altruism weren’t enough—if you register a group of 20 or more people, your team will be elevated to the level of Volunteer Sponsor. What better way to have your organization’s logo and website proudly displayed on our website? For free! After you register, send a quick email to our Volunteer Director to let us know about your group, and be sure to include a high resolution logo in your email. Once your group’s registration and group size have been verified, we’ll let you know when you’ve been added to our ‘wall of fame’.

Cheer & Entertainment Zone Competition

The University of Utah Health 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!

To register for the University of Utah Salt Lake City Marathon cheer and entertainment zone competition, please send an email our Volunteer Director.
