We've been ask about "what Boston" can Baystate qualify you for...

When you run a Boston Qualifying time it is good for 18 months. So that said, if you run a BQ at the 2015 Baystate Marathon, then you are eligible/qualified for entry into the 2016 and the 2017 Boston Marathon events.

You might be able to enter the 2016 Boston - depending... on when they open registration and how quickly it sells out.
We continue to lobby the BAA to set their opening of registration for the weekend after Thanksgiving - that gives all the North American fall marathon participants a shot at the following Boston.

We are well ahead of last year’s pace on both the marathon and half marathon.

I just checked the numbers and was (pleasantly) surprised to see the marathon is 65% sold out (of the 2,000 entries we will accept). This is well ahead of last year – so thank you for that. For […]

Welcome to the New Baystate Marathon Website

We have revamped our website to bring finally bring it into the new Millennium.

We’ve always said we are “For Runners by Runners” and not “For Runners by Geeks” – so it’s taken us a while to get this new stuff working.
