Get Involved



Every year, more than 400 people dedicate countless hours to help ensure the traditions, values, facilities, and programs of the non-profit Millarville Racing & Agricultural Society continue. These events have and continue to play an important role in the community, building spirit and nurturing the next generation. Without the volunteers, these programs and events might not exist.

If you can spare time or expertise to give back to your community in any capacity, we would love to hear from you. If you know of a friend in your circle who might want to help, please mention us. We appreciate your new or continued commitment to MRAS.

Not a runner? Not a problem. Join the fun of participating in our Half Marathon event anyway! See full race details at or contact us at or 403-931-3411 to indicate your interest.

All volunteers receive a commemorative t-shirt and other rewards for generously donating your time to our cause. We also need volunteers helping in the week before the race.

Course Marshal – From Black Diamond to Turner Valley, to MRAS. Among the most important of positions among our volunteer crew. Time commitments vary between an hour in the early morning to several hours later in the morning, but everyone is done by 11 a.m. A course marshall is typically positioned at a turn or intersection and ensures runners know the direction they should be going while keeping the route clear of obstacles. And you are a primary cheerleader and occasional hugger. Expect runners to say “thank you” a lot.

Water Stations – there are six water stations, positioned every three KM. Mixing Gatorade and handing out cups of liquids to runners. Lots of cheering. Wear a cowboy hat!

Finish Area Crew – various tasks including course marshalls, assisting the timing crew, helping with the food tent, handing out medals to runners, assisting with information, set-up and take-down. Positions range from 7:30 a.m. to noon.

Participant Bag Check – Pre-Race and Post-Race, runners may want to “check” an item like a sweater into our care at Black Diamond and pick it up at the Racetrack at the end

Volunteer Host: Assist with giving out t-shirts, meal vouchers, name tags, and recording/ verifying contact information for each volunteer.

Track Crossing Security: Ensure our guests’ and visitors’ safety by ensuring the racetrack is safe to cross and not in use by horses and/or tractors.

Committee Volunteers: We are looking for help on our committee.

For more information, please contact the MRAS or (403) 931-3411

The Fair utilizes the time and talent of over 300 volunteers. Each section of the Fair is managed by a Fair veteran and most need extra help with:

Judging assistants to record judge’s comments (Friday before the fair starting at 5:30 pm, until about 10:00pm)
Fair weekend support (shifts available between 8:00 am and 4:30 pm) in all areas
Take down (Monday and Tuesday after the Fair weekend)

If you want to learn more about how the Fair operates, learn more about how quality is judged in any of the bench exhibit areas, or are looking to make new friends and become part of a vibrant community of people of all ages, backgrounds, and interests, the Fair is the place to find it all.
