B.A.A. volunteers take pride in their role within our races and we are deeply indebted to them for their commitment and support.

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.
