Marathon Course Description (Click here for an expanded Marathon course description)

 

Note: starting this year (2011) we have made a change to the Baystate Course to make it easier to run and easier for the runners by moving the finish to the Tsongas arena.  This puts the finisher and the start in the same area and makes it much easier for you to leave the race area.

 

The marathon starts at the corner in front of the Tsongas Center (the intersection of Fr. Morissette Boulevard and Arcand Drive). Marathon runners start on the left side of the road (half marathoners start on the right side of the road). The runners go west. along Fr. Morissette Blvd, which turns into Pawtucket Street., which turns into Middlesex Street. The runners go by the Rourke Bridge. At the fifth left, runners turn left onto Broulette Street (also known as Grosvenor St).

   

At the end of Broulette, turn right onto Princeton Street in Chelmsford. At end of Princeton Street, the road turns right and goes through Vinal Square to Middlesex Road. Runners head into Tyngsboro and take a right onto the Tyngsboro Bridge. At end of the bridge, turn right onto Route 113. On the first loop, runners will turn right and cross the Rourke Bridge and take a right back onto Middlesex Street.

 

Again, runners will take the left onto Broulette Street. Turn right onto Princeton Street and go through Vinal Square to Middlesex Road. Head into Tyngsboro and take a right onto the Tyngsboro Bridge. At end of bridge, turn right onto Route 113.

 

On the second loop, runners go past the Rourke Bridge and proceed to the Aiken Street Bridge where they turn right.
