The Frederick Steeplechaser Running Club would not exist without volunteers who make everything happen. As an all-volunteer organization, we’re always looking for help! Volunteering with the Steeplechasers is a great way to get involved with the club and the larger running community of Frederick.

Volunteer opportunities range from one-time event support (such as helping at the finish line of local races) all the way up to serving as an officer on the executive board.

To get involved, check out the resources below, or email volunteer@steeplechasers.org for more information. If you would like to be entered into our database of membership talent, complete this survey with your information.  When there’s a need that you match we’ll contact you to see if you’re available.  

Race/Event Volunteer Opportunities

Want to get more involved in the local running community while giving back? The club is always looking for support at local races, including finish line support and aid station volunteering at larger events. Learn more about volunteer opportunities at races and other events.

Committee Positions

If you’re interested in a more long-term commitment to support club operations (including coaching or pacing for our training programs), consider volunteering for one of the club’s committees. Learn more about each committee and volunteer opportunities.

Executive Officer Positions

As a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, the Steeplechasers are governed by an Executive Board. The Executive Board consists of the Officers (president, vice president, treasurer, secretary) and the Board of Directors (past club presidents.) Executive Officers serve two-year terms. Learn more about board service.

Volunteer Recognition

The Steeplechasers recognizes the support of all volunteers each year at the Annual Banquet, with recognition awards given to those who go above and beyond. Learn more about current and past volunteer recognition awards.
