From the moment we parked we were welcomed by smiling, friendly, helpful people. Seriously, the Big Muddy Staff, the volunteers, the sponsors, the farm, the participants - - - I can’t tell you the last time we saw so many happy people in one place.
— Jason B.


One of our favorite parts of any Big Muddy Challenge event is welcoming new and old faces to the Volunteer Team. The energy, compassion and joy each volunteer brings to the event is contagious and a thrill to be around.

So is it true … Yep, as a BMC volunteer you and one partner in crime can run at no additional cost the same day. Plus, you get a BMC volunteer T Shirt – future collectors item!

The volunteer shift is from 7:45a to ~ 11:45a. Full orientations are provided in advance in order to set the stage for success. The one pre-requisite is that each volunteer brings a positive, contagious attitude that supports all shapes, sizes, ages and fitness levels represented across the BMC participants.
