For the past several years, the BARPCV community has volunteered to hand out water, Gatorade, and good cheer to runners at the Mile 23 Hydration Station. While April 18th (aka Marathon Monday) may seem like years away, we hope you are ready to start thinking about volunteering at the 2022 Boston Marathon! (Check your calendar before registering to make sure that you are available because it's not a holiday for everyone.)
Volunteer Registration opens on January 5th and closes on February 18th. In order to help make the registration process as simple as possible, please follow the steps below carefully. We encourage you to sign up ASAP so that we can see your lovely face on Marathon Monday.
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. Even with this past year's pandemic, the BARPCV water station was one of the best attended and ran smoothly.
Volunteers must be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 and will need to provide proof of vaccination prior to participating. There may be future mitigation efforts to be enforced by the BAA, which will be communicated to all volunteers at a later date.
