Volunteer

Thank you for your interest in volunteering with the Emera Blue Nose Marathon. 2025 volunteer registration will be coming soon!

This year, we need as many as 1,000 volunteers to help make the annual Emera Blue Nose Marathon another major success. Halifax is proud to have the best volunteers in Canada, and our down-home sense of hospitality and friendship is second to none.

In so many ways, Blue Nose Marathon is defined by the efforts of its volunteers. So come out, bring some friends, cheer on the runners and have a little fun. In volunteer registration, you will see dozens of shifts to choose from. Looking to join the excitement on the route with your own cheer station? Click HERE for more information!

The atmosphere at the Blue Nose Marathon is incredibly unique. After volunteering, you will walk away from the event feeling not only happy for contributing but inspired. Throughout the weekend, participants and spectators will stop and thank you, and you will receive recognition in more ways than you could ever imagine. But what will resonate, is the pride you feel for taking part in the most anticipated community and family event of the year; the pride you feel for seeing the event come together thanks to the efforts of you and more than 1,000 other volunteers.

Why volunteer?

Aside from joining the community in celebration of healthy, active living, in exchange for your time, you will receive a commemorative Blue Nose Volunteer T-Shirt, free transportation to and from the event on Friday, Saturday and Sunday via Halifax Transit and a Certificate of Achievement for your records. It’s a fantastic time!
