Volunteer for the B.A.A. 10K

Thank you volunteers!

We are proud to say that on Sunday, June 21st our enthusiastic volunteer community stepped forward once again to make the 2015 B.A.A. 10K a success! Our dedicated volunteers and determined participants came together to celebrate the sport in the spirit of commitment, perseverance and adventure. In addition to the over 5,900 finishers in the 10K, we had 40 kids participate in our Youth Races.

Thank you for your service as a B.A.A. volunteer. You showed our participants and the Boston community that our volunteer corps is as strong and spirited as ever! We truly appreciate your commitment to our events, specifically the fifth annual B.A.A. 10K. We hope you had a great time at your assignment and that you will join us for future B.A.A. events!

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.
