NY Marathon | Honey Stinger Gel Station

November 7 @ 8:00 am - 5:30 pm

How to sign up on the NYRR website: Sign into your NYRR account- Use this link to find the volunteer positions.https://www.nyrr.org/GetInvolved/Volunteer/Opportunities... This is not a direct link to our shifts but a general page. Please make sure to select the Honey Stinger station labeled NY FLYERS. If you have any problems locating the shifts to sign up, please message me and I'll try to walk you through it. Apply for the shift.***Please make sure to select "NY Flyers" under group name so the club gets credit. We get 1 non-complimentary entry to the following year's marathon for every 20 volunteers we bring out on marathon day***

** there will be 2 shifts (8am-2pm and 1pm-5:30pm) this year since an extended start process will require all stations to open earlier and stay open later.

Details: As we all now know the 50th New York City Marathon is ON! And as we have every year, the NY Flyers will be staffing the Manhattan Honey Stinger Gel station and we need your help. If you are NOT signed up to run or think you may need to take a deferment this year, please consider lining up with your fellow teammates to man the #1 Best Gel Station on marathon Sunday. Kimberly Alcock-Ainsworth, Robb Cole and possibly John McCreesh will be co-captaining the station again this year and would love to have you on the line as a team handing out gels to 33,000+ runners on marathon day. It's an AMAZING way to take part on marathon Sunday even if you're not running.

It's also a great location to arrange to meet friends and family who are running the marathon - just tell them to look for you at the Gel station and you will be able to greet them (with your course credentials) from the other side of the barricades. If you are running but have friends and family who will be cheering for you, please consider asking them to volunteer with us.

Due to new COVID protocols, there will be a few changes to the scheduling (that we know of right now) - we'll update you as we receive word on any other changes. ** there will be 2 shifts (8am-2pm and 1pm-5:30pm) this year since an extended start process will require all stations to open earlier and stay open later. Please sign up for the one that works best for you. As always, we can work with you if you need a little flexibility in arrival/departure time - just let us know.** the location is 93rd St and 1st Ave (approximately mile18) - the station runs for about 2 blocks. ** children are welcome - just be sure to sign them up using the selection "I am registering - for myself and my children"

Questions: email Hiromi Nobata

NB: THIS YEAR ONLY, race day course positions ARE 9+1 eligible volunteer shifts.
