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 4

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.
