Running Show Volunteers

Sydney Marathon Running Show (Expo) Volunteers

At the Sydney Marathon Running Show presented by ASICS (Expo) participants collect their race bib, browse official merchandise, running equipment and partner offers, and drop off their event day bag for them to collect post-race.

Multiple shifts will be available across the three days of expo.

*Please note that volunteer shift times will vary slightly from the Sydney Marathon Running Show opening hours. There will be multiple volunteer shifts held within the opening hours.

Volunteer Roles

  • Wayfinder

    You will be the welcoming face of the Sydney Marathon Running Show, directing participants to key areas; participant race bib collection, info desk, expo exhibits, race entry, clothing baggage drop-off area, etc. You will need to check that participants have their confirmation number either via their confirmation email or SMS.

  • Registration

    You will liaise directly with the participants. Each runner should arrive at the registration desk with a confirmation email or SMS which contains their bib number. Race bibs will be collated in alpha-numeric order in boxes behind the counter which you will have to locate.

  • Baggage Drop Off

    You will assist in the drop-off area for participant clothing baggage. Some participants wish to have items ready for collection from near the finish line since the start line is in a different location. Participants will arrive at the pre-event baggage area with their clothing and belongings. These items will be taken out from the owner’s bag and placed into an event-provided bag. The participant will then hand you their bib number baggage sticker which you will place on the bag with their contact number. Baggage is then placed into the correct tubs for event race day.

    We will also need assistance at the end of the day to assist with packing up the bags for transfer to the event venue.
