Special Announcement & Off-Topic Post: Amateur Radio Volunteers Still Needed for the 2023 Boston Marathon
Hello to all…
We appreciate everyone’s patience as we make an off-topic post on the need for Amateur Radio Volunteers for the 2023 Boston Marathon. In addition, there is a continued need for medical volunteers for the 2023 Boston Marathon and those interested in volunteering as a medical or general volunteer can use the register.hamradioboston.org link are brought to the general volunteer page which can be utilized for those that are not Amateur Radio Operators to volunteer. Further details for Amateur Radio volunteers follow below:
Volunteer registration for the 2023 Boston Marathon is open and ongoing. The BAA opened early this year and we’re grateful for new and returning volunteers that have already signed up!
For anyone who hasn’t yet, please don’t delay! Volunteer registration closes on Friday, February 10 at 5:00 PM EST.

A few notes for volunteers:
Almost all amateur radio positions are single person assignments. We are not able to group people on a single assignment, but we will try to accommodate which segment you are assigned to in order to allow for similar start/end times.
This year, we will be hosting an in-person volunteer symposium on Saturday, March 18, 2023. There will be more details to follow on this as we get closer, but please save the date for now.
Final documentation is generally released during the first week of April once we have the final logistical details from the various area coordinators for the Start, Course, and Finish areas. Where possible, we will release documents as they become available. In this case, look out for emails from the committee and your Team Captain.
As always, we appreciate your help in getting the word out to prospective volunteers. Please send this to hams or clubs that you think might be interested in joining us on the amateur radio team for the 2023 Boston Marathon!
If you have any questions about the content of this message or about volunteering at the marathon in general, please don’t hesitate to send them to contact@HamRadioBoston.org.
We’re looking forward to seeing you all again soon!
Thank you, and 73,
Boston Marathon Communications Committee
