You’re invited to join our amazing volunteer team, the helping hands of Sydney Marathon, presented by ASICS!  

Volunteering is a great way to give back to the community and meet like-minded people. Be part of the team to make the Sydney Marathon an Abbott World Marathon Major! Get involved on Sunday, 15 September 2024.

To learn more about the Sydney Marathon and its history, visit About Us. For more information on the Abbott World Marathon Majors candidacy process, visit Abbott WMMM Candidate.

We need your help to create a bigger and more engaging event!

We will be offering a number of pre-event roles supporting elite athletes across the week leading up to event day, as well as a large array of positions available during the Sydney Marathon Running Show (Thursday 12th September 2024 to Saturday 14th September 2024) and the Sydney Marathon event day (Sunday 15th September 2024).

No experience is required for most roles – just positive energy, a friendly attitude, and willingness to work within a team and take directions from other volunteers, team leaders, and supervisors.

What’s in it for me?

  • Meet like-minded people and make new friends
  • Learn new skills in a supportive environment
  • Be part of a GLOBAL event – the Sydney Marathon – as it goes through the candidacy process to become an Abbott World Marathon Major
  • Receive a Certificate of Appreciation for volunteering
  • Earn Volunteer Points for every shift to earn a DISCOUNTED or even FREE ENTRY into a future event hosted by Pont3 with our Volunteer Points Program
  • Become part of our Pont3 Volunteer Community on Facebook

When you register, you will be able to choose your preferred role/location – don’t wait since popular roles fill up quickly. For details on the different types of roles on offer, explore the links below.
