Volunteers needed as All-American Marathon expects to attract thousands

FORT BRAGG, N.C. -

With less than two months until race day, organizers of the All-American Marathon say registrations are on track to surpass expectations.

Brittney VanderMoere, one of the race coordinators at Fort Bragg, said Thursday that more than 3,000 runners are expected to participate in the marathon, the Mike to Mike Half Marathon and the All American 5k on May 4.

The two longer race routes will take runners from Festival Park in Fayetteville to the main parade grounds on Fort Bragg.

VanderMoere said as preparations continue, there is now a major push to recruit volunteers.

"We actually need over 1,200 volunteers because volunteers are who make the marathon happen behind the scenes. We need people for water stations and course marshals that are going to be steering and cheering on our runners," VanderMoere said. "Everyone who wants to come out and volunteer, we have a job for everyone. Everyone is welcome. Just apply, and we'll get you set up. Especially if you're with a group we can put you together."

Details about the races and volunteering can be found on the marathon website at http://www.fortbraggmwr.com/allamericanmarathon/
