Invitational Mile Results

 

In 2009, the B.A.A. added a thrilling set of races to the Sunday before Marathon Monday. Not only did the B.A.A. 5K present a chance for thousands of runners of shorter distances the chance to cross the famous Boston Marathon finish line, but the B.A.A. Invitational Mile presented a spectator-friendly set of track-meet style races that brought the cheers to Boylston Street a day early.

In 2010, the B.A.A. added middle school participation to the event line up, where sixth to eight graders race on a 1,000 meter course around the urban block.

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.
