VOLUNTEER PROGRAM OVERVIEW

Volunteering is beyond spending your time doing extra-curricular activities; it is beyond giving your time to something other than yourself. Volunteering is about becoming the change agent this country needs to be the Lebanon we all dream about.

Volunteering is about becoming the leader who will take a step forward and elevate the lives of the people around them. And what better way to change a nation than to take part in the biggest national sports event of the year!

Our volunteers play a key role in ensuring that more than 45,000 participants successfully experience what it means to be united and walk towards a common goal: crossing that finish line. Whether it is manning the gates to ensure order, helping children who have never been part of the event before, or cheering the marathoners as they cover the challenging and long distance, volunteers are the key behind the success of the Beirut Marathon.
