I can’t say anything new about this race except that it never disappoints! And my recommendation to anyone running it is to ditch the headphones! I finally did this year in my fourth year in a row running it and really enjoyed the crowds in all 29 neighborhoods as well as the awesome smiling, cheering, helpful volunteers.

This is the same course where the good folks who brought us the Groundhog marathon and the last chance BQ.2 have added an August race for everyone to enjoy this beautiful course. Very proud to say that I was the overall winner for the inaugural running of the half, and I don’t foresee that ever happening again as this race rightfully games more notoriety in the future.

Great community and national event. Lots of buzz and excitement everywhere. If you're a first timer, save something for the Butterworth road hills at miles 10 to 12! MORE

Phenomenal experience, what can I say that hasn’t already been said?! One of the greatest days of my life to PR and break 3 hours for the first time at my first Boston in extremely difficult conditions.

Very fun race and great production, but many first timers don’t realize that the park trails are not cleared so the course difficulty will vary from year to year, sometimes having snow and ice, which is part of the fun and challenge just be prepared!

If you have put in the necessary training and feel good about your chances but want to make sure you have a favorable course and race production to get to Boston, this is YOUR RACE. Absolutely gorgeous scenic, mostly flat course, and everything about it is geared toward PR’ing and qualifying. The last I heard, almost 69% of the 141 race finishers last weekend for the 2017 race achieved BQs. I cleared my BQ standard by 5:33, which was a new PR by 2:27.
