Sign up to Volunteer at the Boston Marathon with BARPCV

15 Jul 2021 (All Day)

Registration for this event has passed

We hope you will join us at this year’s Boston Marathon on the new Marathon Monday
date, Monday, October 11, 2021. (Check your calendar before registering to make
sure that you are available because it's not a holiday for everyone).

For the past several years, BARPCV, along with many friends and family members, has
volunteered to hand out water, Gatorade, and good cheer to runners.

Space is limited, and so we encourage you to sign up ASAP so that we can see your
lovely face on Marathon Monday. The registration deadline is July 15th at 5pm sharp.

We know that the RPCV community makes the best volunteers, and we are known for
having an amazing hydration station with dedicated, hard-working people. If you have
volunteered in the past, you’ll agree that volunteering at the Marathon is an all-day on-
your-feet adventure in any type of weather. As of right now we know that volunteers will
be masked throughout the day, testing protocols are TBA, runners will not be required
to wear a mask while running, and we might have an earlier start time to help space out
the runners. If none of this scares you away, then please follow the steps below to head
