We love our volunteers and so do our participants!


Sommer Sports volunteers are the best!  Volunteer opportunities are available for all of our events with positions that match all skill levels and schedules.  Please complete our Online Volunteer Form if interested and Lisa will get back in touch with you as quickly as possible!


We are always looking for new event venues and race concepts!

Help us create new events!

Do you know of an ideal venue that would be perfect to host a new 5K/10K or Half Marathon?  Do you have an idea for a new concept or themed race you think would be a hit with the local athletes?  Do you have an inside connection at a high profile venue that you feel may entertain hosting an event?  If so, we want to hear from you!  Please visit our new Suggest an Event Page for more details.

Earn free race credits for select opportunities.

Race for Free!

Earn free race credits by helping out at our events, or by helping in our office.  Positions are available to meet almost any schedule.  Just like when you race, the positions might require physical strength as well as the ability to work in a hot and humid environment.

The journey continues as we, and other events in Florida, begin to take place. As we move forward during these unprecedented times, the same creativity, ingenuity, and passion that has shaped Sommer Sports events in the past, will help shape our events in the future. Because the health, safety and well-being of the community, athletes, staff, and volunteers, is central to everything we stand for, we take racing during COVID-19 very seriously. We are taking every precaution we can to provide a safe environment for you to race in. We would not do it if we did not think we could pull it off effectively.
