PLEASE READ THE INFORMATION AND FILL OUT THE VOLUNTEER SIGN-UP FORM TO JOIN AS AN OFFICIAL FURRY 5K VOLUNTEER!

Here is your chance to sign-up for a one-day volunteer opportunity that is tons of fun and extremely rewarding. This year, we will require more than 100+ volunteers to ensure our event at Seward Park is a huge success!

Volunteers will be grouped by teams. Please read the brief descriptions of these teams below and if interested, sign-up for open volunteer roles here

 

The Race-Day Volunteer Teams:
 
REGISTRATION
Register participants, pass out race packets, t-shirts, and goody bags, solve registration problems, enter race participant numbers using 10-key or computer, dog wrangling. 

RACE COURSE
Set up and take down race course, set up finish line, water stations, and direct runners along the course. It is important to be on time for this volunteer shift, if you are late you'll have to try to catch up and connect with your group out on the race course!

LOGISTICS 
Load equipment onto the truck; distribute, set up and break down tents and tables, pack truck. This team is the backbone of the event. The duties require lifting of bins/equipment. 

INFORMATION BOOTH & GEAR TRUCK
Help direct day-of-race volunteers, greet race participants, distribute 'doggie bandanas,' answer questions, and provide general race information to the public. Some will work the gear truck, helping participants to check-in their belongings, should they choose to do so. 

CLEAN-UP & TEAR DOWN 
Help take down tents, load the truck, unload the truck at the Seattle Animal Shelter, and make sure we leave the park cleaner than we found it.

 

If you can't make it race day, but still want to help:

GOODY BAGS | Saturday, June 4th
If you would like to volunteer to make goody bags for the race participants, please sign up! This will take place in the Seattle Animal Shelter Conference Room.

EARLY PACKET PICK-UP | Saturday, June 11th
Support with early packet pick-up at a to be determined Seattle Mud Bay (Furry 5k Presenting Sponsor) location. Volunteers will help with t-shirt, bib and goody bag distribution before the race.

 

Important Notes about Volunteering on Race Day (PLEASE READ):

  • When you arrive please go to the volunteer check in table, which will be close to the entrance of the park.
  • Volunteers are requested to abide by COVID-19 distancing and other safety guidelines issued by the state, the community or by the Furry 5k.
  • Keep an eye on the weather forecast and be prepared for anything; a hot day and sun or cool temps and rain. 
  • The Furry 5K is a great event for dogs. But, please, if you are volunteering day-of-race, leave your dog at home! As a volunteer, you will be very busy!

As a next step, you will hear from the volunteer coordinator and team lead shortly with additional shift information. In the meantime, please encourage your friends and family to register for the race at www.furry5k.com or to make a donation to the Help the Animals Fund. All proceeds, including registration fees, benefit the Seattle Animal Shelter.

Thank you, everyone! We are looking forward to a fantastic event and could not do it without you.
