UW Medicine has opportunities for medical and administrative volunteers at the Seattle Marathon, Sunday, Dec 1. Led by Dr. Mark Harrast, UW Medical Center Sports Medicine physician and Seattle Marathon medical director, our medical teams will manage four stations along the course and two at the finish line.

Approximately 10,000 runners are expected to participate in the Marathon and Half-Marathon races during the Thanksgiving Holiday weekend. Volunteers can sign up for all-day, morning or afternoon shifts. A medical team orientation will take place Tuesday, Nov. 26, in the evening.

Medical team members include physicians, nurses, physician assistants, physical therapists, medical assistants and techs, as well as students in these fields and administrative staff. They will be well equipped to handle both routine and complex medical ailments common to endurance events. These include strains and sprains, muscle cramps, blisters and abrasions, hypothermia, heat stroke and exercise-associated collapse, including from cardiac and metabolic disorders.
