Interested in Performing or in Creating a Cheer Station?

Our course entertainment aids in keeping runner spirits and vigor up during the race! Interested in performing or cheering at the 2021 San Francisco Marathon, please reach out to: volunteer@jumpingfences.org, and we will follow up with you.

We are looking for individuals or groups of musicians, roving performers, etc. who have a proven track record of engaging, interactive public performances in a variety of settings. Each group chosen to participate will be designated a performance area along our 26.2 mile race route.

For the participants along the route, spectator participation is crucial. We welcome unique cheer station ideas for groups of 10 – 30 people. Art cars and other types of eye-catching cheer zones are ideal! You will be able to “brand” your cheer station within reason.

The San Francisco Marathon Volunteer Code of Conduct and Guidelines. The San Francisco Marathon staff requires that you read and adhere to all volunteer guidelines. We expect all volunteers to act in such a manner to help create a positive, safe, and fun atmosphere for all runners and spectators.

As race week approaches, your team leader will be provided with more detailed information about your role. If you have any questions or comments about our guidelines, or need any additional information, please contact volunteer@jumpingfences.org.
