Campus Classic volunteers are pivotal to the smooth running and success of the race. More than 250 volunteers are needed to participate in everything from the registration of runners and providing water and first aid to ensuring runners stay on course. Volunteers will be assigned where the need is greatest.

Parking is available at the ramps at the corner of West Michigan and North Dormitory Road or Lot 13. Cars must be moved after the race is ended or they will be towed or ticketed.
