ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Organizers of one of Albany's biggest events need you.

They're short of volunteers for next month's marathon.

Thousands of people will come to town next Saturday for the Snickers Marathon Energy Bar Marathon, The Regions Bike Race, and the city's Mardi Gras street party.

It takes more than one thousand volunteers to put all that on.

About 250 people are still needed to be road marshals for the marathon.

"They will keep the course safe for the runners, keep them going in the right direction, and be the community support; they are the ones who show off Albany for us" Lisa Riddle, Convention & Visitors Bureau Dir.

Volunteers get a free t-shirt, a ticket to the Mardi Gras party, and an invitation to a special volunteer reception.

If you want to help, Call (229) 349-1404.
