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.

If you are interested and available during the weekdays and want to be added to our list of volunteers we call upon, please email [email protected] and ask to be placed on our office list! These behind-the-scenes volunteers keep us up and running!
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 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.
