Race Entry Information

Race Description:

The UK Boston Half Marathon is said to be one of the flattest in the country. The race usually takes place on the Sunday preceding the running of the more famous and more difficult to get entry into Boston, Massachusetts USA marathon and after the start of the full marathon.  This year in 2022 it's taking place on the same day on Easter Monday.

Race Information

It is a road half marathon and completely flat all along the course. Starts at Boston Market place and ends at Boston College. There are 9 drink stations on route, also portable toilet facilities approximately every 2.5 miles. We also offer free physio advice at the finishing point.  The goody bag includes a techncial T-Shirt and medal and this is all for a price of £20. The race numbers pack will be sent out after registration closes.

Can I wear headphones at the Boston Marathon?

This is the official advice 'Boston Marathon permit only Bone Conduction headsets (eg Aftershokz sport headphones).  They must not cover the ears or otherwise occlude external sounds.'

What is the flattest marathon in the UK?

Surely this honour has to fall to the Boston marathon, their website claims to have only 21 feet of elevation gain and a very flat course as can be seen from this course elevation profile below. From looking at various strava data we found the average elevation gain to be more like 166 feet but this hands down beats the claim of the Manchester marathon to be the flattest marathon in our opinion. Strava shows the Manchester marathon to have an elevation of 532 feet https://www.strava.com/running-races/2020-greater-manchester-marathon
