The following message was sent to all amateur radio operators that have signed up to volunteer at the Boston Marathon this year:
As you should now have read in the BAA’s email to all volunteers, the decision has been made to postpone the race this year. This was directed by the City of Boston and protects everyone involved with the Marathon; runners, volunteers, medical professionals, spectators, and others.
The BAA has posted their official statement on their website:
We greatly appreciate our volunteers and the work that you do. There are a lot of logistics that go into planning the race and as we have more details in the coming months we will provide timely updates for volunteering for the new race date of September 14. We look forward to your participation on our Team then.
We wish you all the best and very much look forward to September 14th!
Thank you, and 73,
Boston Marathon Communications Committee
