Boston Marathon Volunteer Registration

Volunteer Registration for the 2024 Boston Marathon is closed. Volunteer assignments will be sent on a rolling basis throughout March. 



Thank you for your interest in volunteering at the Boston Marathon! This event wouldn't be possible each year without the help of our incredible volunteers.

Below you can find the timeline for the registration cycle. Please note, assignments are made by taking in a volunteer's individual years of service, availability, and staffing needs. Please take your time with the application to make sure that everything is correct, and you're using your group name and passcode if received from your group leader. If you don't see your typical assignment in the application, reach out to your team captain to receive application instructions.

Please note, volunteers must be 18 by Boston Marathon weekend in order to apply. 

For a list of which positions are available to anyone to apply to, please visit our assignment descriptions.

Thank you again for your interest to become a B.A.A. volunteer!
