Volunteers

A first class, well-run event requires the help, energy and enthusiasm of volunteers in various roles. We’ll need some 50+ volunteers to pull off a successful Thoroughbred Classic.

Volunteers for packet pick-up will check in at Pivot Brewing, 1400 Delaware Avenue. Check the FAQ page for more info.

Volunteers for race day will check in at Barn 2, right next to the start/finish line. Please park in the regular parking locations for race participants. (If you park near the barns, you will not be able to leave until after the entirety of the race is over.)
