Event Information: Youth Races

Bring the family out on race day!

The B.A.A. Half Marathon Youth Races give young and aspiring runners the chance to experience the fun and excitement of the B.A.A. Half Marathon in shorter races designed with them in mind! Children will be grouped by age and have the opportunity to race without the pressure of competition. All participants will receive a bib number and participation award.

Pre-registration is encouraged, but not necessary. You may also register on race day.

We welcome participation in our youth races from our youngest runners. However, please be advised that Massachusetts state law prohibits us from transporting children under the age of four years old via our B.A.A. Half Marathon shuttle bus program. We invite those with children under four years old to utilize alternate transportation to Frankin Park. We appreciate your understanding.
