Event Information
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 uphills, downhills and the perfect distance of 9.3 miles. If you are running "Boston" or just looking to get ready for a 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) for further details.
