We Need Volunteers

We need YOU (and 250 of your closest friends) to volunteer for The Birdtown Half Marathon! We're looking for course marshals, start line and water stop volunteers! Visit the Volunteer page for more information.

The Flock

Brave enough to run the Half Marathon? For those of you who choose to join us on our first Birdtown Half Marathon, you will be entered into an elite group of runners called The Flock. For each year that you run the Half Marathon, we'd like to celebrate those that were with us from the beginning. That could mean a special shirt, a high five from the race director or sweet socks. Sign up now, and become apart of The Flock today!

From the Race Director

We did it! And you help! Thank you to everyone from the participants, city officials, police, fire department, volunteers, race committee, spectators and residents. It was an incredibly positive day and the race committee and I hope you had a great time. A short survey will be sent out soon to gather your opinion on the race. Stay tuned!
