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.

Registration for the 2015 Ashworth Awards Baystate Marathon and Half Marathon will open on March 1st.

Of course you must run a qualifying time in the marathon. Boston qualifying times are […]

Please Bear With Us

Unfortunately our site was hacked about a week ago – and despite backups, we have to rebuild quite a bit of stuff.

Thank You Runners!!!

All of us here at the Ashworth Awards Baystate Marathon and Half Marathon want to thank you the runners for making this another very successful year.

We hope we have been able to provide you with an affordable and enjoyable running experience – that met your expectations and goals.

Being an all volunteer organization that […]

Race Day – Arrive Early

Traffic into the start/finish area is usually very heavy. Plan to arrive early and leave extra time (30 min) for traffic delays.

We recommend you pick up your number at the Expo (at the Radisson Hotel in Chelmsford). But if you wait until race day – arrive extra early and pick up your number at […]

Registration Lists and Changes Will Close October 1st

This is a reminder to everyone – we must freeze our registration lists next Wednesday October 1st. After that time we will not allow transfers nor switches from the Marathon to the Half Marathon.

At that time will be sending our list to the bib printer and to our safety partners. So the numbers allocated […]

Portable Toilets – We’ve Got’em

Need A Bathroom?

The bane of every marathon race director! The lowly portable toilet (aka port-a-john).

Every year this is at the top of the gripe list and every year we increase the number of toilets. And it’s no different in 2014. We’ve again increased the number of toilets, even though we’re well ahead […]

The Marathon Wait List Is Now Closed

At this point in the process, we have closed the marathon wait list. Prospects for receiving an entry via the wait list are now unlikely. Those looking for an entry are best advised to monitor and/or solicit a transfer via our Facebook page.

Also, please be aware that on October 1st we must shut down […]

Marathon – Sold Out

Save yourself five bucks by registering before Friday August 1st.

As Friday arrives – at midnight – so do the new prices. We will still be one of the most affordable races you can find – at $80 for the marathon and $60 for the half.
