As the race that is “For Runners, By Runners” we intend to improve the runner experience every year. Here is what we recently improved:
A new finish line experience with monitors showing your name and finishing time as you cross.
Courtesy changing tents available (next to the bag check tent in the finisher’s area).
Race fly-through video and a personalized photo gallery so you can brag on social media available the next day.
‘Motivation Mile’ which is lined with Inspirational messages from our club members to help you push through mentally where you need it most.
Expo located on the course for ease of pickup and to build familiarity of the last mile of the course.
The Baystate Marathon is one of the most flat, fast-paced races in the country. We attract a balanced combination of recreational, amateur, and competitive elite runners.
We pride ourselves on being a race that is “For Runners - By Runners”.

The Baystate Marathon is one of the most prestigious, flat, fast-paced races in the country. We attract a balanced combination of recreational, amateur and competitive elite runners.
For over 30 years, we pride ourselves on being a race that is “For Runners - By Runners”. The race is one of the few remaining marathons fully hosted and executed by a running club rather than a for-profit company. The Greater Lowell Road Runners use the funds that are raised from the race to fulfill our mission of promoting and encouraging the sport of running through road races, fun runs, group training activities, lectures and social events.
