  • Conduct yourself as a friendly, responsible, informative, and respectful community representative of the B.A.A. to ensure a positive experience for all race participants and spectators.  
  • Treat everyone with respect and dignity. The B.A.A. is committed to creating diverse, equitable and inclusive event experiences.  
  • Volunteers must not discriminate against any individual or group based on their race, ethnic background, religion, gender identity or expression, sexual orientation, national origin, genetics, disability, age, or veteran status.
