Course Map: Boston Marathon

The Boston Athletic Association’s legendary Boston Marathon follows a point-to-point route that starts just outside Boston in nearby Hopkinton, Mass., and runners reach the finish line 26.2 miles later on Boylston Street, next to the Boston Public Library in Copley Square. In between the start and the finish, runners make their way along some of the most famous sights in distance running, from the Ashland Clock Tower to the Framingham Train Station, the campus of Wellesley College to the “Forever Young” statue in Newton, to Heartbreak Hill and Boston’s Back Bay Area.

Note: The course map above provides the approximate route for the race. Though every effort has been made to ensure its accuracy, changes are sometimes made to race routes due to weather conditions, road closures or other circumstances that can require a course to be changed.
