The courses for Run To Remember Boston will take participants on a truly historic tour of downtown Boston. Highlights include the State House, Government Center, Faneuil Hall, Boston Common, The Public Garden, the Old State House, and Post Office Square.

For those venturing out on the half marathon course you have the added bonus of running through additional Boston historical sections including Back Bay with the backdrop of the Boston skyline to inspire your every step. These USATF certified courses are fast, well supported and an amazing opportunity to experience historical Boston like no other.

The course is subject to change based upon certain conditions which may include: weather, known road hazards or closings, and the approval or changes made by government licensing authorities.


The course for the race unfolds through Boston’s wealth of historic sights and streets, taking runners from the start at the Seaport WTC past Boston Harbor and across the Longfellow Bridge over the Charles River, meanwhile running past the gorgeous, green grounds of the Boston Common and Public Garden.

In the second half of the race, the course takes participants along the river to Harvard University and within view of Boston University and Fenway Park across the river.

Mostly fast and flat (with the exception of a few hills and bridges), the race is run entirely along Boston’s city streets, with the largest portion of the race taking place along historic Memorial Drive, with ample views of the city skyline and plentiful areas for spectators cheering you on.

The event’s five-mile run follows the same course as the half-marathon until reaching the intersection of Cambridge and Charles Streets, where those running the shorter race turn left and complete the last stretch of the half course before finishing back at the Boston Seaport.
