Volunteer

WOULD YOU LIKE TO BECOME A SCR VOLUNTEER?

Volunteers are the heart and sole of Space Coast Runners. Every year SCR relies on hundreds of volunteers to put on our race events, fun runs and socials. We also rely on our volunteers for numerous projects like the award-winning newsletter, community events and cleanups. Without the support of the many Space Coast Runners volunteers, our organization would not be able to put on some of the most successful running events in Florida.

If you've ever considered volunteering, please don't hesitate another day. We want and need your assistance. You could become our next "Volunteer of the Year"!
