Volunteer roles

Medical Program volunteers apply to work in medical facilities in Grant Park, along the race course, or at the finish line. Patient care and safety come before all other considerations; whereas the Medical Committee strives to honor positions requested during the registration process, the committee determines all final volunteer assignments based on the training and background of our individual volunteers and the medical needs of the event.
