Race for Education: One Community. Two Races. Every Child.

Become a Volunteer


We need your help!

Volunteering for the race is a great way to support our schools, meet new people, and have some fun! We could not put on this race without the help of our community. There are lots of jobs before, during, and after both our ParadeRun and OktobeRun races. Please help us keep these races running and keep supporting Redwood City schools by signing up below to volunteer.


2019 ParadeRun

Redwood City Education Foundation's RC.ParadeRun 5K kicks off Redwood City's awesome 4th of July Parade with a run along the parade route. Come help us warm up the route and you can scope out the best spots to watch the parade.

There are lots of jobs before, during, and after the race. Not sure what role to sign up for? Tell us when you're available on race day and we'll find a job for you.

If you're interested in volunteering for 2019, sign up below, and ask all your friends to help, run, or walk!

2019 oktoberun

Come help with the 10th annual production of a Redwood City favorite: The OktobeRun Half Marathon and 5K.

Beginning in booming downtown Redwood City, the course circles the saltwater marina at One Marina, joins the Bay Trail next to Bair Island in the San Francisco Bay National Wildlife Refuge, and after some more roads to Redwood Shores, continues to a beautiful gravel and dirt trail next to Steinberger Slough. 

If you're interested in volunteering for 2019, info will be available soon! You can also contact us if you have questions about any of the volunteer opportunities.
