At the end of February, hundreds of marathon runners will descend on Atlanta with the hope of making their Olympic dreams come true.

And as with any race, it will take a team of volunteers to help make the Olympic marathon trials happen.

If you want to get a front row seat to the show, the Atlanta Track Club is looking for volunteers to help with the race.

"This is your chance to be part of the team making the greatest Olympic Marathon Trials weekend in history," a post on the track club's website reads.

Atlanta won against three other cities to hold the marathon trials for both men and women, which will determine the three men and three women who will represent the U.S. in the 2020 Olympics in Tokyo.

Atlanta Track Club executive director Rich Kenah previously told the AJC he thinks Atlanta was selected because of the city’s accessibly due to the airport and the walkability of the downtown race area. He also said the city has established itself within the running community.

"I would point to the history and the respect that the Atlanta Track Club has within the running community and the running space," Kenah said in a 2018 interview.

The trials will take place the day before this year’s Publix Atlanta Marathon. Volunteers are needed for both events.

If you would like to help with course, hydration, or start and finish area, you can register to volunteer here. Those interested must attend one of the mandatory volunteer training sessions on Saturday, Feb. 8 or Sunday, Feb. 9.
