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 puts on this event – we hope you will indulge while we take a brief rest – so if we respond a little more slowly over the next few days – we’re sure you will understand.

Just an FYI, I liked the marathon pacers but your 3:15 marathon pacer (second loop pacer) was way ahead of pace. She grabbed the sign and she was ticking of 7:10 min miles (3 in a row) and overall pace went from 7:25-to 7:20 really fast, I should have know better though. Someone in the 3:15 group mentioned it to me at the finish as well. Great race though! ... See MoreSee Less

Had a great experience at bib pick up and at the event itself. Unfortunately my friend had issues and was pulled by medical so I didn't to cross the finish line. I will be back next year. ... See MoreSee Less

Thank you to all involved with this event! Ran it last year hoping to qualify for Boston but made some mistakes that cost me (went out too fast and crashed hard) Resolved to come back this year to get it right and succeeded--got my BQ by over 8.5 minutes!! This course is without a doubt a great Boston-qualifier--I'm proof of that!! ... See MoreSee Less

Chip/Bib Instructions

 Bib Number / Timing Chip / Bag Check

  1. Timing chip is on back of bib number.
  2. Do NOT fold / bend / crumple / your number in any way. Altering the bib in any way will compromise the timing chip and could cause a failure.
  3. Tear-off strip on bottom of bib number is your bag check number. Please attach this strip to your bag before checking your bag.
    Bag Check drop off is in the Lowell Five parking lot behind the STARTING area of both races.  There are separate bag check areas for the marathon and half marathon.
    Do not put valuables in your bag. We are not responsible for lost or damaged items.
  1. You must show your bib to retrieve your checked bag.
    Bag are retrieved after you finish in the walkout area going around and behind the Tsongas Center

Wearing Your Bib Number / Timing Chip

  1. Your bib number must be worn on your front torso – not on your back or leg.
  2. Your bib number must not be covered. It must be visible on the outermost layer of clothing. DO NOT wear a shirt or jacket over your number.
    Covering your bib can interfere with the operation of the timing chip
  3. Your bib number must always be visible so that you can be identified as a Baystate participant by support staff, volunteers, medical and safety personnel.
  4. Pin your bib number in all four corners.
