There have been quite a few questions about the shuttle service for the hotel guests.
This is our first year offering that service – so we are restricting it to just the hotel guests this year. Each hotel guest should receive the schedule at the hotel.
If this goes well – and we expect it […]
Hi Gang – last night we sent our registration database to the bib printer. This locks in our database of who is running in the marathon and the half marathon (so you’ll have the appropriate number/color bib, with your custom text).
As a consequence we can’t offer transfers at this point.
We can accept new […]
Many will recall that last year our pasta dinner was over-run.
A survey of pasta dinner users for this year gave a sobering prediction – we’d have to feed more than 1,000 people in two hours.
Even large schools, military cafeterias and prison would have a hard time with those numbers. So as much as […]

All of our volunteers will be invited to a volunteer appreciation party a week or two after […]
We opened registration on March 1st.
Thank you to the 94 marathoners and 18 half marathoners that signed up the first 24 hours!!
Registration for the 2015 Ashworth Awards Baystate Marathon and Half Marathon will open on March 1st.
Running the 2015 marathon will qualify you for the 2017 Boston Marathon and, if our lobbying efforts are successful, for the 2016 Boston Marathon.
Of course you must run a qualifying time in the marathon. Boston qualifying times are […]
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 […]
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 […]
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 […]
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 […]
