    There were lots of runners at this race so great energy. Very well organized from the gear check to the post race goodies. I really enjoyed this race – the course was mostly flat, and there were plenty of aid stations along the route. The weather was perfect – not too hot, and not humid. For me it was fun to run in a new city – I was visiting schools in Boston with my daughter and we did the race together. I hope to have the opportunity to do this one again in the future!

    I’ve run this race in the remnants of a tropical storm and I’ve run in in 80F heat with 100% humidity.
    I would say to expect it to be hot and humid and you will be fine.
    The course is crowded so get to the front if you want to PR. Otherwise, wait until Kenmore Square to make your move.

    The course starts in Boston Common and does an out and back on Commonwealth Ave and Beacon St. It finished back in the Commons. Because of the out and back nature, if you can get to the 2 mile mark before the elite runners make it back to the 4 mile mark, you get a ringside seat to the race. Any BAA race is top quality and this one is no exception. This particular year, Shalane Flanagan set an American Record on a Road Course. It was an amazing day.

    This is the second race in the Boston Medley. The race starts and finishes in Boston Common. Most of the course is an out and back on Commonwealth St, so you run a good portion of the Marathon finish. The 10k does not turn up Hereford however, you keep straight on Commonwealth to the Commons. You will see the race leaders on the out and back portion of the course and will realize how fast they are going. A great course and well organized race. 2015 race was run in a frog strangling shower, but that only made it more fun.
