ABOUT THE EVENT
The Marathon Kids National Kickoff Ceremony will take place in Austin, Texas on October 17, 2015 from 10:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. Held at the Mike A. Myers Track & Soccer Stadium, our National Kickoff Ceremony is an important event for Austin-area kids, their families, and our Marathon Kids around the country. The ceremony honors and motivates kids everywhere as they set their running club goal of 104.8 miles (four marathons) and allows them to start their journey by running a ceremonial kickoff lap. This event has a lasting positive impact on the kids who participate and is an incredible opportunity for the entire community to rally around their Marathon Kids as they move toward living happier, healthier lives.

VOLUNTEERING
This will be a really fun event for both attendees and volunteers and we're excited to invite you to join us for this big event. We will be recruiting about 600 volunteers so we could use as many awesome people as we can get! Because you are more than a volunteer, you are the face of this event to the kids participating and we value the impact you can make. 
You can sign up to be a volunteer as an individual or as a group.  All volunteers with the same group will be placed together--we know that volunteering can be even more fun when you're with friends. Volunteers will help MK staff with registration, greeting guests and cheering on participates, assisting with race heats and much more!
 
On October 17, set up will begin between 6-7am with a mandatory volunteer training at 8:30am. The event is from 10am to 1pm with tear down scheduled until about 2pm. We will have a few shift options but the full day will be from 6am-2pm.
