How We Give Back

Volunteer Team

Our mission is to promote physical activity, provide social connectedness, and support the running community in Morgantown. 

 

Support the local running community: We Run! Morgantown is happy to support and promote the local running community by providing We Run! Morgantown members as race participants and volunteers. We can volunteer at running events in a variety of ways: race committee members, water stop attendants, registration staffers, traffic monitors, finish line attendants, post-race food providers, and so forth.

 

Physical Activity: We Run! Morgantown provides volunteers and participants to our community running partners for the purpose of helping to promote physical activity within Morgantown. 

Social Connectedness: Race Day is Fun Day! We Run! Morgantown is a great way to meet new runners, make new friendships, and help one another cross that finish line.
