Race Information

The Boston Athletic Association (B.A.A.) 5K is held the day before the Boston Marathon, giving runners a chance to kick off the weekend in grand style. The race starts and finishes at Charles Street adjacent to Boston Common and the Boston Public Garden.

The B.A.A. 5K serves as the first race of the B.A.A. Distance Medley, a three race series that also includes June's B.A.A. 10K and October's B.A.A. Half Marathon. Many of the world's fastest runners participate in the B.A.A. Distance Medley each year.
