Boston Marathon Volunteer Program

Thank you for your interest in volunteering for the 2017 B.A.A. Boston Marathon. Volunteers truly give us the capacity to produce a world-class experience for our participants and community members, and we look forward to working with all of our volunteers towards a successful event.

Volunteer registration will open on Wednesday, January 4, 2017 at 10:00 a.m. and close on Wednesday, February 8 at 5:00 p.m.


Returning volunteers will receive an email from the B.A.A. on January 4. A small number of volunteers will be affected by a change in the registration process that you should receive information on from your team captain. If you haven’t heard from your team captain regarding updated registration instructions by January 4 and you’re having trouble completing your application, please contact Mary Miller (


Most of our volunteer positions are filled by returning volunteers and volunteers groups. We regret that opportunities to participate have become extremely limited for new applicants. You are still welcome and encouraged to apply as a volunteer and will be notified of your acceptance or non-acceptance via email by Friday, March 10.
