Medical Volunteers

The Scotiabank Toronto Waterfront Marathon Medical Team consists of over 100 medical professionals with varying backgrounds and experience. Each year, the team is made up of veterans of the event along with many first time volunteers. The medical team is positioned at the start area, on course, at the aid stations, at the finish area and in the post-race area.

The minimum certification to provide medical care is the successful completion of a Standard First Aid & CPR course. Please note that we also have opportunities on the medical team that do not require any medical training.
