In order to ease course congestion, a multiple-pulsed start program will be implemented. Runners will be seeded according to their expected minutes per mile pace they entered during registration, as well as by bib numbers. Signs will be positioned in the start area on Charles Street to indicate your start position by expected pace and bib number.

The 6.2-mile course is a scenic tour through Boston’s Back Bay, and is flat and fast. Notable neighborhoods and attractions include the legendary Bull and Finch Pub, after which the television series “Cheers” was developed, the campus of Boston University, and Kenmore Square. The race begins on Charles Street, winds down picturesque Commonwealth Avenue and Bay State Road as far west as Babcock Street near Boston University, before heading back on Commonwealth Avenue, around the Public Garden and finishing on Charles Street.

1935 John A. Kelley

Born in West Medford, Massachusetts as one of ten children, Kelley ran track and cross-country at Arlington High School in Massachusetts. He did not finish his first Boston Marathon in 1928, but eventually competed in a record 61 Boston Marathons. A legend of the marathon, Kelley won the 1935 and 1945 runnings of the Boston Marathon. He finished in second place at Boston a record seven times. Between 1934 to 1950, he finished in the top five 15 times at Boston, consistently running in the 2:30s. He ran his last full marathon at Boston in 1992 at the age of 84, his 61st start and 58th finish there.
