The race is still months away, but volunteer registration for the Boston Marathon is almost over. The deadline to sign up is Tuesday, February 10. We hope you’re as excited to help out as we are, so don’t delay—register now!
Registration is a simple two-step process:
1. Register with the BAA
If you’ve volunteered at a BAA event before, you’ll sign in with your BAA Volunteer Loyalty Number, which you can look up on the site. Otherwise, you can sign up as a new volunteer. When the system asks you for your assignment preferences, make sure to choose one of the Ham Radio options. You’ll know you’re done with this step when the system shows you a confirmation number.
2. Sign up with MMRA
We use this to collect additional information specific to our volunteers, like what equipment you have.
For more details, refer to the BAA’s information page for amateur radio operator volunteers.
If you have any questions about the sign-up process, feel free to send those to baa-contact [at] kd1sm [dot] net. And as always, thanks for volunteering.
