LMJS is an all-volunteer community organization, with volunteers who

  • plan and organize every aspect of our Fourth Sunday Runs
  • sponsor kids races
  • design and order our great club apparel
  • lead weekend fun runs and training programs
  • partner with local stores and organizations for donations and prizes
  • form relay teams
  • write articles, take photos and publish our outstanding newsletter
  • maintain our award-winning website
  • plan exciting events like Tilden Tough Ten, club parties, and much more.

If you have a little free time, a skill you’d like to share with the club, or just want to meet other runners, then you’d be an excellent LMJS volunteer!

Volunteer at our Fourth Sunday Races

LMJS hosts a 5K/10K/15K race every 4th Sunday around Lake Merritt. These races would not be possible without volunteers.

Why Volunteer?

  • an opportunity to meet and work with the LMJS crew;
  • a behind-the-scenes look at what it takes to put on a race; and
  • the amazing feeling of helping your fellow runners;


  • Race day setup
  • Food & beverage management
  • Check-in & race day registration
  • Kids 1-Mile Fun Run management (when one is scheduled)
  • Course direction
  • Finish line management
  • Timing team
  • Teardown & cleanup

More Info

For general information, please contact our Race Coordinator Karen Andrews.

Each LMJS race is directed by a Race Director (RD). The RD for a given race may differ from one race to the next.

To volunteer for a specific month's race, contact that month's RD. 


Volunteer Recognition -> See Who's Volunteering

We sincerely appreciate all the volunteers who help make LMJS a great club, month after month and year after year. The club recognizes volunteers who contribute their time, expertise and general support to our races, training programs, social events, partnerships, and normal club business.

Thank You to each and every one of you, LMJS volunteers; our club could not exist without you.

We try to recognize all our volunteers at the Annual Club Party.  We also aspire to keep a running list of volunteers throughout the year on our website. This is a bit of a challenge to keep it current, so please bear with us.  Our apologies if anyone has been inadvertently omitted; if we miss you in our records, please email Edmundo; we'll get our records updated.
