There are plenty of different opportunities surrounding race weekend including working the Essentia Health Fitness Expo, marathon start or finish areas, massage therapy, medical services and racecourse entertainment.

One initiative that race organizers are particularly focused on this year is about sustainability.

"It's the big-hearted community of people that come out that makes Grandma's Marathon what it is," Volunteer Director Tara Gallagher says. 

Gallagher says about 6,000 people volunteer each year.
