Volunteering

It is expected that all members or a representative participate in at least one (1) of the Lions Valley Athletics organized Volunteer, Charity or Community events for each season they are a member. We have three (3) seasons per calendar year so we ask for a minimum of three (3) commitments for all annual memberships.

We support the community and places we run, along with local races and events. We are Part of the Town of Oakville’s Park Ambassador Program for Lions Valley Park and one section of trail on the north side of the upper east bank. We regularly need volunteers to help clean up the park and trail with the gloves and bags provided by the Town of Oakville and report any damage or problems.  Landmark Sports Group manages the Nutrience Oakville Half Marathon and Mississauga Marathon events while the Burlington Runners manage the Robbie Burns Road Race and Good Friday Road Races and our members participate in these events or volunteer their time on race day. 

See the Calendar for specific event details and other events where we require volunteers.
