Get Involved

We are proud to call Fox Trot a true community event. There are lots of ways you can get involved with the race.

Registering as a Runner or Walker
Taking part in the Fox Trot gives a unique look at our beautiful City.

Becoming a Fox Trot Volunteer
Fox Trot volunteers are essential to the success of the event. You can get involved with helping at water stations, preparing runner packets or even holding the finish line!

Becoming a Fox Trot Sponsor
We couldn’t make Fox Trot happen without the support of our sponsors. We have a wide range of sponsorship packages designed to fit any budget and aims.

 

 

Volunteering

If you are not able to run at Fox Trot this year but would still like to be involved, why not become a Fox Trot Volunteer? We are looking for volunteers to help us out up to the day of the Fox Trot, and on the day itself.

Bib & T-shirt Pick-up Assistants
This year we are allowing our runners to pick up their race items the day before the race, on Friday, May 27.  We need volunteers to help the runners find their items.
Volunteers do not need any special skills, just the ability to provide good customer service.

Race Day Assistants
There is no way we could manage Fox Trot without a little help on the day from our local community volunteers!  We need help with a wide variety of tasks on race day.  Jobs include directing runners and the public, monitoring the safety and welfare of the runners, helping to set up barricades and banners, assisting runners with their timing chips and helping out at the finish line.

If you are interested in signing up as a Fox Trot Volunteer, please contact the Special Events office by calling 311, or via email at specialevents@cityofelgin.org
