Volunteer With Us

Volunteers are the heart and sole of Atlanta Track Club. Every year Atlanta Track Club relies on more than 8,000 volunteers to put on our 30+ events. We also rely on our volunteers for numerous projects at the Atlanta Track Club office and warehouse. Without the support of Atlanta Track Club volunteer corps, our organization would not be able to put on some of the most successful running events in the US.

Become a Crew Chief

Atlanta Track Club crew chiefs are volunteer leaders who oversee important operational areas before our events and on race day. Examples of operational areas include start waves, water stops, medals, and food. Crew chiefs are the foundation of a successful event. As Atlanta Track Club representatives, crew chiefs serve as a bridge between Atlanta Track Club and the thousands of volunteers who donate their time to our events. Crew chiefs communicate essential details to the volunteers in their operational area in a timely manner and provide them with the knowledge to do their job effectively.

Weekday Office and Warehouse Volunteer Opportunities

Many volunteers support us during the weekday hours here in the office and warehouse by tagging and labeling participant bibs, mailings, helping with inventory, and numerous other projects. If you are interested and available during the weekdays and want to be added to our list of volunteers we call upon, please email and ask to be placed on our office list! These behind-the-scenes volunteers keep us up and running!


Atlanta Track Club ambassadors are energetic, active and enthusiastic members who volunteer their time to help promote Atlanta Track Club and its many member benefits. Ambassadors are volunteer leaders who assist at all four major events throughout the calendar year as well as take part in numerous activities throughout the community helping to spread the word of the Track Club.

Run Leads

Atlanta Track Club run leads are volunteer leaders who assist in the weekly delivery of our In-Training programs to enable participants to safely and comfortably complete their goal event. Atlanta Track Club Run Leads help foster a community of support and encouragement during training sessions, as well as, act as an inspiration to promote Atlanta Track Club's mission of creating an active and healthy Atlanta. Examples of program support include but not limited to: running with participants, course and hydration set-up, set-up home base, course monitor, and attendance.

Pace Leads

Atlanta Track Club Pace Team is comprised of experienced half and full marathoners who run an even split pace during the race to help participants reach their goal finish times. We offer pace leads for the QQQ Invesco Thanksgiving Day Half Marathon and the Publix Atlanta Marathon, Half Marathon & 5K. Click here to learn more about Atlanta Track Club Pace Leads.

Kilometer Kids Coaches

Kilometer Kids coaches are famous for fun. Kids ages 14 and under look to these rock stars for advice about everything from how they can outpace their friend in the next running game to how to navigate 5th grade. Some of these volunteers are teachers, many are parents, and all are devoted to showing kids how fun it is to have good health, build community, exercise with friends, and do their very best. Kilometer Kids teams only exist when someone like you decides to recruit a few friends to help out and give kids the opportunity to get outside and get active. Click here to get started!

Volunteer Age Requirements

For the safety of our volunteers and our participants, we do have some age guidelines in place. Volunteers that are 16 years old and up are free to volunteer at events on their own. Volunteers between the ages of 12-15 are welcome but must be accompanied by an adult. In an effort to allow our younger generation the opportunity to give back to their community, we have a "Volunteer In Training" program that allows 7-11 year olds to volunteer at our events in a safe and fun environment. If you have a child in either of the 7-11 year age group, or 12-15 year age group, please be sure to indicate that in your communication so that we can place you and your child in an appropriate and safe volunteer assignment at our events.

Run lead and pace lead volunteers are required to be at least 21 years of age.
