Volunteering in Groups

Volunteer registration for the 2018 Boston Marathon is now closed. 

If you are a new group, please contact Alaina Belanger at abelanger@baa.org before applying. If you are a returning volunteer group, here's how it works...

Step 1: Designate a Group Leader/Coordinator.

Step 2: The group leader submits his/her own personal online application first. When prompted, choose the option to create a group. Create a group name, pass code, and job preferences for the group. Complete the remainder of the application and submit. Make sure to write down the on-screen confirmation number. Seeing this number on-screen is an indication that the group has successfully been created. When selecting job options please consider the following:

  • Personal Vehicles vs. Public Transportation
  • Final Examinations
  • Businesses - Monday is not a holiday for all businesses
  • Athletic Teams - games/matches/meets, including any potential rain-dates
  • Duration of Assignments - many assignments in Hopkinton allow you to be done by noon but Boston assignments are committed through 5:00 pm

Step 3: The group leader will communicate the group name and pass code to the group members.

Step 4: Every group member must complete the online application individually. When prompted, group members should choose the option to join a group, then type the group name and enter the pass code. Complete the remainder of the application and submit. Make sure to write down the on-screen confirmation number. Seeing this number on-screen is indication that you have successfully completed the application process.

Group members receive separate correspondence from the B.A.A. and are individually responsible for making sure they are aware of B.A.A. policies and procedures.
