Volunteering is a great way to give back to the community by supporting the Omaha Running Club's events held throughout the year. Anyone can volunteer. If for any reason you are unable to participate in an event, you can stay active and support your fellow runners by volunteering.
Added Bonus: All volunteers receive a 5 point volunteer ticket for each day they help at one or more of our events. Volunteer tickets expire 3 years after the event date shown on each ticket. Volunteer tickets can be used to purchase ORC items at the ORC Gear Sales table available at our events several times a year. Also, volunteer tickets can be used to purchase Omaha Running Club membership.
In addition, all volunteers are invited to our Annual Volunteer Appreciation Dinner normally held in May or June.
There are countless ways to help out at Omaha Running Club events. Volunteer opportunities for ORC races are listed on our event calendar. Click on the specific race you would like to volunteer for and you will be taken to the volunteer information page for registration.
Sample opportunities include:
- Aid station support
- Pre- and post-event set up and tear down
- Packet pick up
- Course monitors
- Gear check
TRAIL CLEAN UP
The Omaha Running Club is passionate about keeping our trails safe and beautiful. We work with Keep Omaha Beautiful and host trail cleanups several times each year. The Omaha running community makes great use of Omaha's superb trail system and it is our goal to help remove litter and maintain the natural beauty that our trail system offers walkers, joggers, runners and more.
