Volunteering to Make a Difference

 Become A Part of Our Race Team!

Long Beach has a great tradition of enthusiastic volunteers known as the “Port of Long Beach Race Team.” We are looking for individuals, clubs and associations to help be a part of this 2,000 plus-person team. All volunteers will receive a Race Team t-shirt, special volunteer parking, credit for community service hours, detailed training before the shift starts, and all volunteers are treated to a post-race party hosted by Run Racing.

Registration Opens Soon
