It takes a lot of volunteers to put on a successful race. Come help your friends and neighbors create the memory of a lifetime at the 2024 USA FIT Marathon, Fort Bend Kia Half Marathon, and Simon Spine Virtual 5K… make some new friends and memories of your own! There are pre-race volunteer dates available for packet stuffing and packet pick-up. There are many positions available for race day.


“Volunteering for the USA Fit Marathon/Fort Bend Kia Half Marathon/Simon Spine 5K has been not only a pleasure but a fantastic experience for me.  I’ve been on the Planning Committee for a few years and when asked my part—my answer always starts with “I arrive at U of H at 3:00 am on race day to check in the Early Walkers…”  I’ve been involved in other areas…packet stuffing, packet pickup, setup the day before, hanging medals, guard at the meal area, tear down on race day plus many more (we go where we are needed) but ultimately when race day has ended I know that I have made many friends along each step of the way and there is definitely a nap by 4:00 pm!”

“The best part about volunteering for the USA Fit Marathon is working side by side with the local high school volunteers who are our heroes of the future. I’m so proud to be a part of this diverse community and to work with such smart, dedicated young people. And as a bonus, so many of the runners are local – I am always surprised by how many people I know, it’s so much fun to cheer them on! Last but not least, it’s for a great cause – the Fort Bend Education Foundation, which funds teacher and school grants for FBISD. Just do it!”
