Marathon Volunteer Registration Now Open

Per Clay Center ARC’s Facebook page:

Volunteer for the 2017 Boston Marathon Communications group!

The registration deadline is Wednesday, February 8th, 2017.

As we look back on the past year, through the stories of athleticism, triumph and community that are told at each B.A.A. race — especially the Boston Marathon — we recognize the lively spirit of Boston Athletic Association volunteers. Thank you for your singular and collective contribution towards making Patriots’ Day exceptional for 30,000 participants each and every April. We now look forward to the 121st running of the Boston Marathon, to be held on Monday, April 17th, 2017, and sincerely hope that you can join us once again as a volunteer for this iconic event.


Note: Registered volunteers must be 18 years old on the day of the race. Youth club members will be told how they can participate through club leadership at the club meetings.

We invite you to register as a volunteer for the 121st Boston Marathon. The registration deadline is Wednesday, February 8th, 2017.…/volunteer-…/volunteer-registration.aspx

New for 2017: 
All volunteers should receive a separate email from your Team Captain or group leader with registration instructions including a group name and passcode for your specific assignment. Please contact Mary Miller at if you have not heard anything by January 9th.

Volunteer Loyalty Number: 
When you register, you will need your volunteer loyalty number (if you have volunteered before, there is a link to retrieve your volunteer loyalty number if you have forgotten it) and your zip code. These items are associated with your personal volunteer history, which is primarily how we determine volunteer assignments.

Volunteer of Fame:
We are thrilled to launch the Boston Marathon Vol of Fame highlighting volunteers who have reached the milestone of 15 or more years of service. Take a look to see who you may know!

Thank you again for your commitment and loyalty to the B.A.A. We look forward to hearing from you!
