Be a Part of the World's Fastest 5k!

On April 6th, runners from around the country will converge in Carlsbad to compete in the Carlsbad 5000. This race is home to 16 World Records, and is considered the fastest 5k race in the world! If you want to be a part of the festivities but don't want to run, volunteer! The event includes:

• Fast and Fun Seaside Course
• 2-Day Health & Fitness Expo
• Beer Garden and Live Music
• 50,000 weekend spectators
• Elite Athlete Invitational

Volunteers are needed to help staff the Awards Booth and Water Stations, and to register new runners. At the finish line volunteers will organize and hand out refreshments, time race participants, and hand out medals, t-shirts and goodie bags. Volunteers over the age of 21 can help staff the beer garden!

Volunteers are also needed on Saturday April 5th for the Junior Carlsbad Race and Friday April 4th for the Pre-Registration Party. Volunteers will help with set-up for a party on Friday from 2 to 7 pm.

This is an exciting opportunity to be a part of one of the biggest events in North County. Volunteer and have a blast!
