Participant Information: Hands-Only CPR Program

CPR demonstration video for all runners and volunteers

The Boston Athletic Association, in conjunction with the American Red Cross and the American Heart Association have produced a CPR demonstration video for all runners and volunteers. By watching you can learn and use this life saving technique when the situation arises. Learn how you can “Bridge the Gap” from the time a fellow runner goes down in distress to when our marathon medical team arrives.

Hands-only CPR is a potentially lifesaving technique involving no mouth to mouth contact. It is best used in emergencies where someone has seen another person suddenly collapse. The hands-only technique increases the likelihood of surviving cardiac emergencies that occur outside medical settings.
