Why do we call this the Boston Tune-up? With just over two weeks until the acclaimed Boston Marathon, we have the perfect Tune-up with a combination of up-hills and downhills and the perfect distance of 9.3 miles. If you are running "Boston" or just looking to get ready for the local race, come join us. We are sure that you will enjoy this scenic course and country atmosphere.
This year we are pleased to add our event to the USATF-NE Grand Prix series as the 15k Championship. This designation will attract a new group of elite runners and have an even greater impact to the charities and communities that this race benefits. Please visit the the USATF-NE Grand Prix website (HERE)
