The Mission Inn Run is celebrating its 37th year! We need over 300 volunteers to bring this event to downtown Riverside—it’s a great way to participate, earn community service hours and help your community. We hope you will join us as a volunteer … individually or as a group!

All proceeds from the Mission Inn Run benefit the not-for profit Mission Foundation & Museum and its educational outreach programs.

We have all sorts of tasks that need doing – setting up and breaking down tables and chairs, handing out T-shirts, pouring water for runners on the course, pulling tabs from the runners as they cross the finish line, helping clean up, etc. The various jobs have different hours but we need people from 5AM to 2PM . You can work all or part of the time.

Please call Stephanie Starbuck at 951-781-8241 to get a job assignment and what time to report. You may also email us at run@missioninnmuseum.com

The Foundation will confirm community service hours for students who volunteer.

More Questions? Come to the volunteer orientation at on Saturday, November 1st, between 10am and 2pm. Pick up your volunteer pack, meet other volunteers, learn the job early, and see where it all happens. Enter our drawing for Mission Inn gift certificates! It all happens at the Mission Inn Museum, 3696 Main Street, at the hotel, corner of Mission Inn Avenue and the Main Street pedestrian mall.
