Baystate Marathon

Lowell, MA
October 22, 2017

We are consistently one of the top ten marathons for qualifying for Boston. Even with the new/harder qualifying requirements, 25% of all runners at Baystate run a BQ - making it one of the fastest marathons in America. The course itself is a double-loop course along the Merrimac River with a start/finish at the Tsongas Arena.

The beautiful course and energetic volunteers really make this race. The course is also mostly flat and fast, which make it perfect for a Boston qualifier (thought it's after Boston's registration). Aid stations were also plentiful, the race started on-time, and logistically everything was perfect. Thanks to the race director for a great race!
