Welcome to the B.A.A. Volunteer Corps!

B.A.A. volunteers take pride in their role within our races and we are deeply indebted to them for their commitment and support. We hold our volunteers to the highest standards and they always exceed our expectations. The athletes and community members know that when they see a B.A.A. volunteer, they are encountering individuals of the highest quality. Our volunteers are people for whom excellence is normal, and whose actions exceed excellence whenever and wherever it is needed.

Our full menu of events requires thousands of dedicated volunteers to help ensure runners and spectators get the support  they need throughout the day. There are a wide variety of volunteer opportunities to choose from every facet of the race. If you would like to join our B.A.A. volunteer corps, please complete an application for the event you wish to participate in.

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.
