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 timing and scoring system will begin recording your time once you cross the starting line. Your net time will be your official time. Prize money awards will be based on the time from the starter's signal.
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.
