We applaud the Boston Athletic Association for its commitment to safely host the 2021 Boston Marathon on October 11, 2021. The announcement of the 125th Boston Marathon date is a hopeful first step to the return of in-person events. As a longtime partner of the B.A.A., we are pleased to yield our traditional race date of the second Monday in October for the Marathon.
This will allow the Marathon to occur and deliver the economic impact that our region’s businesses, large and small, desperately need. It’s in the spirit of this partnership that we welcome back in-person races—including the 45th running of the Boston 10K for Women on a new date. We will provide additional information about the Boston 10K for Women and its new date soon.
