Volunteers are the foundation of races, it allows non-runners the opportunity to be a part of the race experience and they are essential to making the race possible! If you are interested in participating in the Octoberfest Half Marathon race or expo as a volunteer please email runoctoberfest@yahoo.com.

All volunteers receive a t-shirt (left over runner's swag) and a truly memorable experience!!

Volunteers will arrive at 8am on race day!!



We would like to give a very special THANK YOU to the Peru Fire Department for allowing this race and expo to take place at the Fire Station. They are providing the onsite medics and traffic control!!!


In addition to the 500+ runners participating in this event, there will be thousands of volunteers, spectators and business owners alike attending this weekend long event. There are so many benefits to becoming a sponsor of the Octoberfest Half Marathon. We invite you to take this opportunity to get involved with the community and be a part of a great event.
