Not so interested in running, but still want to help and join the fun?

Volunteering at the 5K Safari is a great way of giving back to the community, while having a great time. We feel very fortunate to do what we love, and be able to help others in the process, so your help as a volunteer is GREATLY appreciated!

  • The number of volunteer opportunities are limited, so please be sure you are one of the first to apply.
  • Please make sure to volunteer for a shift you can fully commit to. We highly depend on each team member, so by taking on a volunteer role and dropping out it will really hurt the event.
  • Please add volunteers@5ksafari.com to your email contacts to ensure you receive our e-mails. We will be sending details on your confirmed volunteer shift, day, and time, and about the pre-event information packets.
  • Note, the volunteers@5ksafari.com email address is for outgoing-mail only. To contact us, please “Submit a Request” here.


Thanks again you so much again for your interest in joining the wildest and most exciting race in Miami. We look forward to receiving your application, and to host an Amazing event together.
