Volunteer - North Shore Turkey Trot


Volunteering at North Shore Turkey Trot

The North Shore Turkey Trot is seeking energetic volunteers to assist with Packet Pick Up and Race Day events. Volunteers provide key support to the thousands of participants as they run, celebrate and support Chicago Help Initiative, our official charity partner.

We rely on the dedication of volunteers to make the North Shore Turkey Trot a huge success, so please consider joining the fun!

Individual Volunteers
All volunteers are required to register through the official registration process on the EnMotive volunteer registration page. The sign up page shows all available volunteer opportunities. Please make sure you are available for the duration of the listed time frame before registering for desired position. Individual volunteers will assist with nearly every aspect of the event, including:
• Assigning bibs and distributing goodie bags at Packet Pick-Up.
• Organizing runners by corral at the start line and/or welcoming participants back at the finish line.
• Directing & cheering on the course to keep all race participants safe and motivated.

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!


To be considered a Volunteer group, your organization must be able to provide 15 or more volunteers. Group volunteer opportunities are great for schools, clubs, sport teams, fraternities, sororities, etc. To reserve volunteer spots for your group, please follow the instructions below:
• Complete a submission at the volunteer group registration form.
o It is important to indicate the number of volunteers your group will be providing accurately, as RAM Racing relies on your anticipated number to ensure coverage and full support for our participants.
• Wait until the Volunteer Manager follows up to confirm your group’s participation by sending a specific URL unique to your group
• Once you receive this private registration link, have ALL group members register through this link and this link ONLY!

RAM Racing is happy to provide either a donation or verification of community service hours in return. Groups will only be eligible for these benefits by fulfilling the committed volunteer hours and requirements.
