Just curious where the 4:00 pace group finished. I chatted with the first pacer before the race and she said they'd be running 9:07's but I hung back for the first few miles and my splits were 9:05, 9:01, and 9:01. She was well ahead of me. ... See MoreSee Less

Big thanks to the 3:45 pacers. You helped me beat my time at Baystate from 15 years ago. You two plus the guy just in front of me with the shirt that read "put old on hold" helped keep me on track. ... See MoreSee Less

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 [...]

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 [...]

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.

But hey – five bucks is five bucks [...]

Qualifying for Boston

We’ve had quite a few requests for information about qualifying for Boston in general and for 2015 specifically.

We’ll address general qualifying first.

You must run the marathon to qualify for Boston. Baystate is a certified course, accepted by the BAA for Boston Qualification. How fast you must run depends on your age (as it [...]
