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 Boston 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.

Registration for the B.A.A. 5K is completed through the Boston Marathon volunteer application. Please click here to visit the Boston Marathon volunteer page. 

B.A.A. Moment 2

1996 - Centennial Boston Marathon

The starting field of 38,708 for the centennial race stood for more than seven years as the largest in the history of the sport. Included among the finishers were 16 Boston champions. The historic 100th Boston Marathon was monumental for another reason. It was the first time that a chip timing and scoring device was used in a major US Marathon.
