Boston Athletic Association, established in 1887, is a non-profit organization with a mission of promoting a healthy lifestyle through sports, especially running.
B.A.A. events would not be possible without the hard work of our dedicated Volunteer Corps. Our volunteers are held to the highest standards, and at each event their work exceeds the expectations of athletes, race, staff, spectators, and community members. Our events require thousands of volunteer hours to ensure a smooth experience for all those involved in our races. Volunteer opportunities include a wide variety of assignments and will connect each volunteer with fellow volunteers and participants while celebrating the B.A.A. mission of promoting a healthy lifestyle.
