2018 Charles River Marathon & Half Marathon Relay
Join us at the 2nd annual Charles River Marathon and Half Marathon Relay. The USATF Certified course is a flat 2.6 mile loop around Boston’s scenic Charles River. Marathoners run ten laps. Relay teams run 5 laps with 2, 3, 4, or 5 runners.
Charles River Marathon registration process explained:
Entering the marathon requires two steps;
1) Register on this page which captures your entry info and creates your RaceMenu fundraising page.
2) Raise at least $150 for RACE Cancer Foundation via your RaceMenu fundraising page
UPDATE JULY 24 2018:
Our wait-list is now closed. All wait-list applicants will be notified via email by 5pm today about their status. Due to overwhelming demand, we have released a few bibs with no fundraising requirement. These bibs are available with a $350 entry fee on a first-come, first-served basis. Charles River Marathon entries are non-refundable and non-transferable.
UPDATE JUNE 20 2018:
We stopped accepting fundraiser registrations for the marathon in April. As of today, 250 fundraisers have registered (step 1) and 164 of them have raised at least $150 (step 2) to guarantee their marathon entry. The first 200 fundraisers who've reached the $150 fundraising minimum will have guaranteed entry into the marathon. If you want to know how our fundraisers are doing, you can see the amounts raised on the start list. There is no wait-list. We will make an announcement in early July if less than 200 runners reach the fundraising minimum by June 30th.
If, on July 1st or at the time the 200 confirmed entrants threshold has been reached, you've registered as a fundraiser and have raised more than $0 but less than $150, your marathon application will be canceled. Donations on your fundraising page are nonrefundable. All canceled applications will be reviewed and some fundraisers may still be invited into the marathon at the discretion of RACE Cancer Foundation.
Join us on September 8th, 2018 for Boston RunFest, a partnership between RACE Cancer Foundation and the Pediatric Brain Tumor Foundation to bring a full day of charitable running events to Artesani Park. The day begins with the 2nd annual Charles River Marathon & Half Marathon Relay, and continues into the evening with the Starry Night 5K. 100% of the proceeds of these events benefit RACE Cancer Foundation and the Pediatric Brain Tumor Foundation.
