Volunteering to help is a great way to get involved in this wonderful local event that gives so much back to the community. If you’ve never helped out at the Groton Road Race – you should consider it. It is a rich experience to see the warmth of appreciation and smiles of gratitude from the participants. It’s a great event and a very personally rewarding experience. If you can spare a few hours, you'll also earn a free race t-shirt.

No experience necessary!

There is absolutely no need to be a runner, jogger or any other type of sporty person. We need helpers of all shapes and sizes and we’ll find something for everyone to add value at! This is an entirely locally supported volunteer event, and the volunteers make the event possible. You’ll make great new friends and add to the cultural fabric of the local community. It can be an experience you’ll never forget. Many of our volunteers come back year after year!

SqRR has donated nearly $50,000 to local charities from past years' race proceeds. We typically donate funds to:

  • Four annual college scholarships to graduating seniors who have participated in their schools' track & field or X-C teams and were active in their community through scholastic or volunteer programs.
  • Local safety organizations without which the race wouldn't be possible - Groton EMS, fire department and police auxiliary fund, as well as the Nashoba Valley Amateur Radio club.
  • SqRR is committed to promoting the sport of running to local youths by making annual donations to running programs at Littleton, Groton-Dunstable, Ayer-Shirley, and North Middlesex high schools. In addition SqRR provides funding for a summer track and field program that attracts approximately 150 kids in grades K through 8.
