Get Involved in the Excitement of Boston Marathon Weekend

Thank you for your interest in volunteering at the B.A.A. 5K and Invitational Mile Races.  These events provide a thrilling appetizer for Monday's Marathon, as thousands of runners of a shorter distance can cross the Boylston Street Finish Line in front of thousands of fans in the 5K, and the top mile runners from around the world and from area high schools compete (respectively) in the invitational mile.
