Volunteer - Pumpkins in the Park 5k


Volunteering at Pumpkins in the Park 5k

The Pumpkins in the Park 5k is seeking energetic volunteers to assist with Packet Pickup and Race Day events. Volunteers provide key support to the hundreds of participants as they run, celebrate and support Chicago Park District's Night Out in the Parks.

With a variety of exciting positions available, there is a position for everyone, including individuals, teams, school groups, corporate groups, friends and family. The Pumpkins in the Park 5k is not possible without the help of all our amazing volunteers, so come out and join the fun. No experience is required.

The volunteer registration page shows all available volunteer shifts. For questions, please contact volunteer@ramracing.org.


We need Volunteers to commit to the entire shift - please make sure you are available from the start to finish of desired positions (typically 4-6 hours)! Volunteers must be 14 years or older. If you are interested in volunteering beside a friend, please register for the same volunteer area. As a thank you for volunteering, volunteers will receive specific volunteer gear. The Volunteer Assignment Email will be sent 10 days before the race and will include all logistical specifics (parking, description of position, etc.) Your flexibility is greatly appreciated as we ensure all participants and volunteers have an enjoyable experience!


Group volunteer opportunities are great for schools, clubs, sport teams, fraternities, sororities, etc. To be considered a Volunteer group, your organization must be able to provide 15 or more volunteers and submit the above Group Registration form to reserve a spot. RAM Racing is happy to provide either a donation or verification of community service hours in return. One chaperone is required for every 10 volunteers under the age of 18 years old to ensure sufficient supervision. Please be thoughtful on the number of volunteers your group will be able to supply as we rely on your anticipated number to ensure all volunteer positions are covered. Completed registration forms should be returned to volunteer@ramracing.org.
