Route 66 Marathon Volunteer Opportunities



The Williams Route 66 Marathon showcases the best of what Tulsa has to offer!  The race starts in downtown Tulsa, home of the largest concentration of Art Deco architecture outside of Miami, and then winds through Tulsa’s vibrant and diverse neighborhoods and the campus of Tulsa University. If there’s one thing you can count on at the Williams Route 66 Marathon, it’s tons of on-course support from the local community and plenty of fun. Our neighborhoods host block parties all along the course to welcome and cheer on the runners! 

Thousands of people around the world will train for months to get to the Williams Route 66 Marathon in Tulsa, OK.  However, without the help of volunteers, these individuals are unable to cross the starting line, much less the finish line, which is why we need you to be a HERO to our participants and help them to achieve their goals.

Coordinating a successful marathon is a major undertaking that is simply not possible without the heart and soul of more than 2,000 volunteers.

From humor to encouragement, every volunteer brings his or her own personality to the race. Whether passing out t-shirts, passing out water or awarding competitors with a medal, each role is equally important – and rewarding. Volunteers at the Williams Route 66 Marathon return to assist year after year, making lifelong friends and creating moments that last forever.

Our event is always held the weekend before Thanksgiving.
