Help earn money for your organization!  Tired of selling candy and magazine subscriptions?  Sick of car washes?  Then volunteer to help staff a Hermes Sports & Events race in greater Cleveland or elsewhere in Northeast Ohio.

Hermes Sports & Events produces many events throughout the year. When it comes to running in Cleveland, most of the major races held in northeast Ohio are managed by Hermes. Volunteers are the backbone and support that many events that we produce need.

Almost every event we produce benefits a charity or non-profit organization. In order to keep costs down and proceeds up, volunteers have become an essential part of many Hermes events. There are numerous responsibilities- some at each event, some specific to individual events. The task we need covered for most events are:

  • Water Stations: hand out water to runners on the course
  • Registration: help hand out pre-registered race numbers and t-shirts
  • Timers: call out split times at each mile mark on the course
  • Refreshment distribution (Post Race Food): hand out food and drinks to runners after crossing the finish line
  • Course Monitors: direct runners on the course

If you would like to help out at any of our northeast Ohio race events, please contact us by emailing Adam at apetrovic@hermescleveland.com or by calling (216) 623-9933. All volunteers are rewarded with a donation, t-shirts, refreshments, and our appreciation.

Races that we need volunteers for are:

-Chili Bowl

-Cleveland 10 Miler

-Ohio City Run & Crawl

-River Run Half Marathon

-Hermes Dead Sprint

-Turkey Trot

-Pigskin Classic

-Reindeer Run

Assignments for each race will be made on a first come first serve basis. If your organization is interested in volunteering, please contact Hermes Cleveland office at (216) 623-9933.

Thank you in advance.

Please note:  Our events are held outdoors and are held regardless of weather conditions.

A donation will be made to your organization for your help at the race depending on your participation
