Volunteers Needed for Marine Corps Half Marathon

UMW is a sponsor of the Marine Corps Historic Half Marathon on Sunday, May 19. We will have a booth at the Fredericksburg Expo Center on Friday, May 17 from 4–8 p.m. and Saturday, May 18 from 10 a.m.–7 p.m. This is where runners pick up their packets. We will be handing out branded towels as well as information about UMW. We are looking for volunteers for two-hour shifts. It’s a great opportunity to meet and greet folks from all over the country.

We also need volunteers for the UMW water stop bright and early Sunday morning. You can hydrate AND encourage the 7,000 runners as they make their way down Sunken Road.

If you are interested in volunteering, please contact Kelly Eury at
