When it comes to important partners with the B.A.A., the City of Boston is atop the list

The City of Boston Parks and Recreation Department works in collaboration with the Commonwealth of Massachusetts Department of Conservation and Recreation, the Town of Brookline and in conjunction with the Emerald Necklace Conservancy to provide upkeep and maintenance and to protect and promote the beautiful Emerald Necklace park system.

With the vital work of these important agencies, not only is the B.A.A. Half Marathon held here, but thousands of pleasure-seekers who enjoy the urban parks througout the year are the true beneficiaries.
