An internship at the Beirut Marathon Association is a gateway to learn about the world of running and Sports Management from an experienced team.
Interns will benefit from the dynamic and energetic atmosphere while learning about sports event management, sports communication and marketing, logistics management, events and hospitality management, and volunteer management, sports video and photography.
An internship is also a great way to stand out amongst graduating seniors who have career-related work experience. The experience you gain might not perfectly match your major or your chosen career path, but it will give you transferrable skills, a notable work ethic, and a competitive edge. Your internship experience will also expose you to professionalism and allow you to observe how skills and ideas are applied in the real world.
Internships can be full time or part time, a few months or a full year in length, for undergraduate or graduate students, local or international. All interns earn certificates of internship and recommendation letters from the BMA: Great added value to have on any CV.

Become a Volunteer
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.
Organizing a race has two phases: Pre-race and Race day.
