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.
