What is The All Community Events world’s Largest Corn Maze 5K?
Come out and help All Community Events and Special Olympics Illinois put on a 5k in the worlds largest corn maze. Below will see the jobs available for the day. You will be assigned and trained by All Community Events staff.
Volunteers will more than likely work more than one job throughout the event.
Registration Assistant – Volunteers will help with the process of participants checking in. They will check if the participant is registered by last name and if so then give them their race materials. Some volunteers will also assist with the process of new participants signing up the day of the race.
Course Marshal – Course marshals will be placed on the course (in pairs of two minimum) and help direct the participants so they run the correct way. Here we ask the volunteers to be as enthusiastic as possible encouraging the runners to have a good time.
Water Station – Volunteers assigned to the water station will fill up cups of water and help distribute them to passing participants.
Volunteers should sign-in upon arrival to keep track of volunteers in attendance. Please write SOILL or Special Olympics Illinois next to your name.
