race volunteersOur enthusiastic and cheerful volunteers are a highlight of the Oak Tree mentioned by runners every year. Join us in helping each runner accomplish their race-day goal. Plus, receive an Oak Tree t-shirt!  Volunteers of all ages are welcome. Various jobs and time-commitments are needed.  Review the options below and contact us and we will find the best place for you to help out!

Water Stations

A group of 5+ is perfect for staffing a water station; hand out cups to thirsty runners and cheer them on during the race.    

Road Marshals

Direct runners along the route at an intersection and stop traffic from entering the course during the race. Various locations need to be staffed within the Village and on Nations, Roots Tavern, and Houston Roads.

Registration/Packet Pickup

Distribute race numbers and shirts to runners on Friday, Saturday, or Raceday and help runners register in-person. Pickup takes place in Pittsford on Friday and Geneseo on Saturday and Raceday.

Course Setup / Takedown

Join us Saturday to assist with setting up the course and/or assist with race-day course setup or post-race takedown. These critical tasks ensure runners have a great race experience and allow you to volunteer and still watch your runner during the race. A pickup truck may be helpful in this position, but is not necessary.


Jam out on your instrument of choice to keep runners smiling along the course in the Village or our on the country-roads. Soloists and groups of any genre are welcome!


A credentialed medical personnel is needed to assist with analysis of runners, treat minor needs, and coordinate professional response when necessary. Preference is for an active member of the Geneseo Fire Department. An ambulance and other personnel will also be on-site.

Race Committee

Do you love the Oak Tree and running? Ask about joining on our race committee which meets four times throughout the year to plan the race. Each committee member takes on one aspect of the race to manage and oversee.


A variety of other volunteer jobs exist. Contact us with your skills/interests or just offer to help and we will place you were the need is greatest!
