B.A.A. Returns to USATF New England Grand Prix Action at the Lone Gull 10k
On Sunday, September 15th, the USATF New England Grand Prix series returned after a nearly two-month hiatus. The 10k Championship was hosted by the Lone Gull 10k in Gloucester, MA, marking the second time that the race has served as the championship host.

The B.A.A. boasted three top-ten finishes with Nick Wheeler leading the men with his fifth-place finish and Mike Fisher a few spots back in tenth. In the women's race, Kasie Enman returned to action just three months after the birth of her second child. She was the first B.A.A. woman across the line in 6th place overall.

Top age-group finishers include division champions Mimi Fallon (45-49), Wayne Levy (45-49) and Harry Carter (75-79). Chris Magill was third in the 40-44 year old division. Levy and Fallon both lead their divisions in the overall grand prix standings while Magill and Carter sit solidly in second place.

The next USATF New England Grand Prix race will be the 30k Championship hosted by the Nahant 30k on Sunday, September 27, 2013 in Nahant, MA. The 2013 series will conclude with the Manchester City Marathon on Sunday, November 3 in Manchester, NH.

B.A.A. Moment 1

1920 - Ashland Start

The Boston Marathon began in Ashland, Massachusetts from 1897 through 1923 then moved to Hopkinton for the 1924 race. The course was lengthened to 26 miles, 385 yards to conform to the Olympic standard, and the starting line was moved west from Ashland to Hopkinton. Since then, the race has started in Hopkinton every year.
