The 14th Annual B.A.A. Half Marathon

B.A.A. HALF MARATHON

The B.A.A. Half Marathon, presented by Dana-Farber Cancer Institute and the Jimmy Fund, highlights the beauty of Boston and Brookline's Emerald Necklace park system while furthering the Boston Athletic Association's mission of promoting health and fitness. The 13.1-mile, out and back, rolling course, begins and ends at White Stadium in Boston's Franklin Park. The park, one of the oldest in America, is located in Boston's Jamaica Plain and Dorchester neighborhoods.

The half marathon is organized by the B.A.A., which is best known for its Boston Marathon, and the race is the final event during the calendar year for the B.A.A. Distance Medley: a three-race series which combines the B.A.A. 5K in April, the B.A.A. 10K in June, and the B.A.A. Half Marathon on the Sunday of Columbus Day weekend in October. The inaugural B.A.A. Half Marathon was in 2001, and the field size is limited. Since the race’s inception, the B.A.A. Half Marathon has grown in popularity and now reaches its maximum field size as soon as registration opens.

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.
