Medical Volunteers

We invite you to be part of the team of 1,500 volunteer licensed medical professionals who will provide medical expertise to more than 50,000 runners at the 2020 TCS New York City Marathon. You will meet great people, gain experience with event medicine, and be a part of the world’s largest marathon. You must be able to attend a medical orientation in advance of the event and to stay for the full duration of your assignment.

The following volunteers are needed:

  • Physicians—specialists in sports medicine, emergency medicine, orthopedics, GP, cardiology, podiatry, and other areas
  • Nurses
  • Physical therapists
  • Occupational therapists
  • Psychologists and MSWs
  • Massage therapists
  • Pharmacists
  • EMTs and paramedics

Learn more about medical volunteer positions and the requirements for each position.

We also need students and others who will assist medical professionals at medical aid stations along the course and at the finish line. Hours vary by assignment and location. Volunteers with previous experience will be given first priority on placement.

If you are interested in learning more about being a medical volunteer at the TCS New York City Marathon and/or any NYRR race, please contact us at  

Volunteers are accepted on a rolling basis. You will be notified when your profile is complete. You can also check your status by logging into your NYRR account and viewing your volunteer commitments. Medical volunteers will receive a TCS New York City Marathon windbreaker jacket to wear on race day, a T-shirt, a commemorative volunteer lapel pin, a certificate of appreciation, and a letter of community service. Volunteering on November 3, 2020 is not eligible for the 9+1 program for the 2021 TCS New York City Marathon.
