5k Volunteer

The 5th annual Public Service 5K Run/Walk will be held in the Washington, DC, area and cities across the US whose virtual teams join the race.

Outside the Washington, D.C. metro area we are recruiting “City Captains” to help raise awareness about virtual participation in the 5K.

City Captains:

  • Advertise via their personal network and local community by posting flyers and promoting participation via email and social media;
  • Suggest local parks or other locations where runners and walkers can meet on race day to sprint, jog, or stroll a roughly 5 kilometer distance; and
  • Help connect registered participants who would like to walk or run as a group on race day.

We’ll give you all the tools you need to succeed, including downloadable flyers and lots of ideas for getting the word out.
