Get Involved

The Route 66 10K needs your help. The Metro Milers are looking for dynamic and energetic people to get involved.

Volunteer Opportunities

Packet Pickup - Assist in dispensing the race packets to runners as they arrive. This also includes answering questions about final race instructions.

Pre-Race Course Setup - Arrive approximately at 5:00am to assist in the setup of the finish and course. This includes posting signage, putting up tents, placing mile markers and dropping supplies off for water stations.

Finish Line Area - Assist in handing out finishers swag, cold water and directing runners to the food/post race party.

Road Course Marshalls - Act as vehicle traffic control at smaller intersections to ensure automobile traffic does not interface with runners. Safety vest must be worn at all times and returned back to the Volunteers Coordinator. Edwardsville Police will control traffic at larger intersections.

Post Race Clean-up Crew - After the race, assist with the take down and cleanup of the start/finish line, water stations, and course. This includes tents, banners, signage, tables and trash.

Have a classic car that you would like to show off or have a large group that wants to show off their team spirit? Then we would love for you to join us.

A mandatory meeting is scheduled for all volunteers.

"Mother Road Spirit" Award

An important part of the overall race experience for a participant is the support and encouragement along the 6.2 mile course. We want the Route 66 10K to be FUN for both runners and spectators. Again this year we are asking that groups create SPIRIT STATIONS along the course. Play your favorite music, make banners or signs, create a unique theme…do whatever you want to make it fun and exciting for both your SPIRIT STATION group and the runners! We want groups to dress up and go crazy to help encourage the runners as they pass and give them that extra boost to cross the finish line. SPIRIT STATION groups will be voted on by runners after the race. The top six groups will receive a donation to their sport team, not-for-profit organization or the charity of their choice. SPIRIT STATIONS must be registered to be eligible for cash prizes, so sign up your group today!
