With its numerous rolling hills along a combination out-and-back and loop course made up entirely of Boston’s paved city streets, the Boston Athletic Association Half Marathon shows off the city’s parkland areas, taking runners past Olmstead Park, Jamaica Plain (and the Jamaica Pond) and the Arnold Arboretum on the way to Franklin Park. The final mile of the race takes runners around the Franklin Park Zoo and into White Stadium, where runners cross the finish line.
Note: The course map above provides the approximate route for the race.
