Some of you may have already gotten an email from the BAA but volunteer registration is open for the 2022 BAA Half Marathon taking place on 11/13/22 starting in Franklin Park! There is a need for amateur radio volunteers so if you are free that day and interested please sign up. If you have volunteered at a BAA event in the past the process is very similar and you should see a banner once you log in. If you have not volunteered at a BAA event in the past follow these steps:
- Go to https://www.baa.org/races/baa-half-marathon/volunteer and follow the link to sign up for an Athletes’ Village account.
- After creating your account and logging in you should see a 2022 B.A.A Volunteer Program banner with a button that says “To Volunteer Click Here”. Click the button
- Fill out all the information in Steps 1 and 2
- For Step 3 choose “General”
- For Step 4 choose “Yes, I am an Amateur Radio Operator” and fill in your callsign and equipment
- For Step 5 choose “Apply as an individual”
- For Step 6 choose “Amateur Radios, Operations — Sunday, 11/13/2022”
You should get a confirmation number and an email shortly after. Registration closes October 21st at 5pm so don’t delay.
