The Palo Alto Run Club encourages volunteerism and recognizes members who perform volunteer services. In recent years, PARC has staffed a relay exchange at the The Relay and a water stop at the San Francisco Marathon. PARC member Stan Jensen hosts the Run 100s website and is an aid station captain for several ultras. Dave Ahn and Michael King participate as organizers of the Home Run. Dave Wibbelsman serves as a director of the Run for the Future. The club salutes these and other members who volunteer time and effort at local running events.
