Beantown Marathon
Quote | Reply
Hello,

Does anyone have any info/insight with respect to the Beantown Marathon ( http://beantownmarathon.com/ )? Due to injuries I've had to wait till the last minute to try to qualify for Boston.

The best I can tell from the website, it looks like only ~120 people have signed up so far. I signed up and had a question so I emailed the RD. After almost 2 weeks , no reply. I'm getting an uneasy feeling about this race. Maybe just normal pre race paranoia.

I would hate to train through the heat and humidity of this summer only to find out that there is a problem with this race.

Thanks

It definitely looks fishy. Their Facebook page hasn't been updated since March...

I don't know about that race, but another option would be https://racecancer.org/runfest
It's the day before the Beantown Marathon.

Thanks for that suggestion. 10 laps!! And I thought the Beantown 6 loop course was going to be tedious.......

I reached out to RaceWire and got the following reply:

Hi Raymond!
Thanks for reaching out.
I can assure you that this is going to be an official BQ. The course is getting certified this weekend . Typically our certifier will get me official maps, and the USATF cert number the week following. We will keep you posted.
