Thank you for your interest in volunteering for the Boilermaker. It takes thousands of people and months of planning to pull off this great event. Without people like you and our current group of 4,000 volunteers, Boilermaker Week wouldn't be what it is today.

Our volunteers have a wide range of experience, interests, and time availability. We do know one thing for sure, our volunteers are the heart and soul of this race and their time and efforts are highly valued.

If you are interested in being a part of Boilermaker Week and contributing to our community's biggest and best event, we are now accepting applications for the 2017 Boilermaker Volunteer Force. The Boilermaker usually needs volunteers to help in the positions listed below. If you are interested in these positions or any other volunteer opportunities in 2017 please email cindy@boilermaker.com
