“In Knoxville, we are known for our volunteer spirit,” Covenant Health Knoxville Marathon Race Director Jason Altman said. “We’re calling on our community to help us go the extra mile for all those participating from Knoxville and across the world.”

The two-day community event on Saturday and Sunday, April 6-7, has a variety of positions to fill. Race officials specifically are looking for volunteers to staff the Clayton Health & Fitness Expo on Saturday, at the finish line for all races and at water stations during the Sunday races. Volunteers may sign up individually or in groups.

“We’re thankful to have such a giving community of people here,” Altman said. “We encourage our neighbors, friends and loved ones of participants to join us. Make this year the best one yet for the Covenant Health Knoxville Marathon!”

Volunteers should complete online registration at and choose the day, time and task that best suits their individual or group preferences. To thank them for their contributions, volunteers are invited to attend the Volunteer Appreciation Party on Wednesday, April 17, at 6 p.m. at Calhoun’s on the River.
