Event Volunteers

You don't have to run to be part of the excitement.  Volunteers contribute to the success of the event and can still feel it, see it, do it even if not covering miles in the race as part of the running pack.  Hundreds are needed before, during and after the event to welcome and cheer on the racers in "front-row seats," while performing a number of critical activities as part of the volunteer race crew.  Come from far away, or join your neighbors in town and be a part of the thrill, be a part of what it's all about, be a part of what racers love to relive in great memories - volunteer for The Papillion Half Marathon, 10K and 5K, the Papillion Days Duathlon, the Papillion Mayor's Triathlon or the Sumtur 10K and 5K Twilight Dash.
