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.

Volunteer registration for the B.A.A. 5K is now closed. The deadline to apply was Tuesday, February 10th.

Thank you to all who applied! We will send out assignment notifications around March 10th.

 

B.A.A. Moment 3

1966 - Bobbi Gibb

Although not an official entrant, Roberta “Bobbi” Gibb became the first woman to run the Boston Marathon. Joining the starting field shortly after the gun had been fired, Gibb finished the race in 3:21:40 to place 126th overall. Gibb again claimed the “unofficial” title in 1967 and 1968.
