Team your brand up with the Boston Athletic Association

The B.A.A. oversees and manages the most prestigious race in the world – the Boston Marathon, and a number of smaller events throughout the course of the year that are immensely popular among the running community. Most notably, the B.A.A. Half Marathon in October reached it’s field size limit of 7,000 just hours after opening registration. The inaugural B.A.A. 10K was held on June 26, 2011, and the B.A.A. 5K offers a thrilling prelude to the Boston Marathon on the Sunday before the big race.

B.A.A. Moment 8

1996 - Centennial Boston Marathon

The historic centennial Boston Marathon in 1996 was monumental for many reasons. It was the not only the first time that the ChampionChip timing and scoring device was used in a major US Marathon, but it was the largest running event ever held at the time. 

The starting field of 38,708 stood for more than seven years as the largest in the history of the sport. Included among the finishers were 16 Boston champions.
