Board of Governors

Meet the Board of Governors

The Boston Athletic Association Board of Governors is comprised from a diverse group of experienced Boston-based professionals who volunteer their time to the B.A.A.  The Board oversees many of the decisions the Association makes, including the addition of new partners, new programs, and new events.  As the B.A.A. continues to evolve into an Association for all seasons,  each enterprise must receive Board approval before it takes flight.  The Board stands in firm support of the mission statement of the Association.

B.A.A. MISSION STATEMENT

B.A.A. Moment 2

1935 John A. Kelley

Born in West Medford, Massachusetts as one of ten children, Kelley ran track and cross-country at Arlington High School in Massachusetts. He did not finish his first Boston Marathon in 1928, but eventually competed in a record 61 Boston Marathons. A legend of the marathon, Kelley won the 1935 and 1945 runnings of the Boston Marathon. He finished in second place at Boston a record seven times. Between 1934 to 1950, he finished in the top five 15 times at Boston, consistently running in the 2:30s. He ran his last full marathon at Boston in 1992 at the age of 84, his 61st start and 58th finish there.
