MIDDLE SCHOOL 1K
The first of six races belong to middle-school aged students from the eight cities and towns of the Boston Marathon course – Hopkinton, Ashland, Framingham, Natick, Wellesley, Newton, Brookline, and Boston. Participants must be between the sixth and eighth grade, and be residents of the city or town they choose to represent. The 1,000 meter race kicks off not long after the conclusion of the B.A.A. 5K, and the participants loop across the Boston Marathon finish line, before finishing in front of hundreds of cheering fans.
SCHOLASTIC INVITATIONAL MILE
After the middle-school athletes have finished, the high-school-aged participants take to Boylston Street for the 1-mile race. Like the Middle School 1K, the 16 participants in the boy’s and girl’s Scholastic mile must be residents of the city and town they choose to represent, and between the ninth and 12th grade.
