YOUTH RACES

The B.A.A. Half Marathon Youth Races give young and aspiring runners the chance to experience the fun and excitement of the B.A.A. Half Marathon in shorter races designed with them in mind!

 

  • At 8:00 a.m., kids up to 14 years old may compete in races on the track in White Stadium, finishing at the B.A.A. Half Marathon finish line.
  • There will be two distances, a 50-yard dash and a 300m run.
  • In order to complete the races before the elite athlete finish, participants must be registered and report to the stadium entrance no later than 8:00 AM. 
  • All participants will receive a bib number and will receive a medal as they cross the B.A.A. Half Marathon finish line.
  • Pre-registration is free and is strongly encouraged.
  • Race day registration will close promptly at 8:00 a.m. on race morning.

We welcome participation in our youth races from our youngest runners. However, please be advised that Massachusetts state law prohibits us from transporting children under the age of four years old via our B.A.A. Half Marathon shuttle bus program. We invite those with children under four years old to utilize alternate transportation to Franklin Park. We appreciate your understanding.
