Outside Magazine looked at marathons with greater than 1,000 finishers and checked out their median times to determine the fastest marathons in the country.  Baystate was ranked 4th on the list.  The list was topped by our big neighbor – Boston, thanks to their qualifying requirements.  Aside from them, the only others to beat us were downhill runs.

It’s like we tell you – we may not have the fastest winning times, but thanks to all of you and everyone else trying to get to Boston, we are one of the fastest fields.  So thank you for that – you’re the ones that make that happen.

And remember – Your first step to Boston is at Baystate.
