General volunteers

Volunteer policies
To help make this year’s race a successful and positive experience for everyone, we expect volunteers to abide by the volunteer policies. Aid Station Captains and key volunteers should enforce these policies with their volunteers.

Volunteer account
Login to your volunteer account at cemevent.com/login.

Volunteer group registration
Aid Station volunteers must be affiliated with a group. First, the group leader must complete the group leader application process. Then, the group’s registration link will be available on the Aid Station volunteers webpage.

All volunteers must register online individually by Monday, October 1, 11:59 p.m. 

If volunteers have questions, please direct them to the Volunteer FAQs or to contact volunteer@chicagomarathon.com.


Course adjustments were made in 2018 that affected the numbering of the aid stations. Please note that while the number of your aid station may have changed, the location may be relatively the same as it was in 2017.
