Canal Run

Mon July 13 - Sun July 19 Hancock, MI 49930 US


It takes more than 100 volunteers to make the Canal Run the great event it is. From the very start, this event has been run by some of the very best volunteers the Copper Country has to offer. Most of them have been doing it for many years and can tell you many stories of their time at the Canal Run.

Volunteer Opportunities

Why? Because they love the Canal Run. It’s a great event and one that the Keweenaw community is proud of. Are you ready to help us continue the Canal Run’s great tradition? Every year we need volunteers (view volunteer descriptions) to help with registration, organizing the finishing chute, helping with timing, helping at the aid stations, leading and following the race, controlling traffic and setting up the course. Even if you’re participating in the event, we still need your help.

Oh yeah, have we mentioned that all volunteers get a FREE Canal Run t-shirt? Fill out the form below, and we’ll be in contact with you soon about volunteering.

Volunteers will need to sign a release form prior to volunteering. Download the form below.
