Boston Marathon®

at this time we are not recruiting for the 2021 boston marathon.

————————————————————————————————————————————————–

The BAA released on 3/2/21 that they will be providing a virtual option for the 125th running of the marathon. They will allow 70,000 people to register for the virtual in 2021.

When registration for the virtual opens, and you register and are accepted to the virtual marathon, please connect with Elizabeth (elizabeth@tedysteam.org) if you are interested in running for a greater purpose and fundraising for Tedy’s Team.

Running with Tedy’s Team with a virtual registration is completely different from being a part of our in-person marathon team.

Fundraising virtually as a part of our team will have a $2,000 fundraising minimum requirement and is separate from the registration to the BAA to participate in the virtual race.

We will provide you with the following once you are accepted onto our virtual team and sign your commitment:

  • Special virtual Tedy’s Team Boston swag
  • Special virtual Tedy’s Team singlet
  • A fundraising webpage
  • A virtual goal planning call
  • A virtual training plan

Tedy’s Team will not provide any in-person opportunities regardless of where a registrant may be located. Training for your virtual race will be your responsibility and will be separate from our in-person team.

Should you have any questions, please reach out to Elizabeth.

Press Release from the BAA dated Tuesday, January 26, 2021:

Fall 2021 Boston Marathon Date Selected

The Boston Athletic Association (B.A.A.) has announced that if road races are allowed to take place as part of the Massachusetts reopening plan, the 125th Boston Marathon will be held on Monday, October 11, 2021.

“We announce the 2021 Boston Marathon date with a cautious optimism, understanding full well that we will continue to be guided by science and our continued collaborative work with local, city, state, and public health officials,” said Tom Grilk, President and C.E.O. of the B.A.A. “If we are able to hold an in-person race in October, the safety of participants, volunteers, spectators, and community members will be paramount.”

“Massachusetts continues to fight COVID-19 and distribute vaccines across the Commonwealth, and with brighter days ahead, we are looking forward to getting back to a new normal in 2021,” said Governor Charlie Baker. “We will continue to work with local partners and the B.A.A. to monitor the situation and remain hopeful that the 125th Boston Marathon can take place this October.”

“While it was of course the right thing to do, canceling the 2020 Boston Marathon for the first time in its 124-year history was one of the hardest announcements to make,” said Mayor Martin J. Walsh. “Today, I’m filled with hope, as we set our sights on October for the running of the 125th Boston Marathon. We have a ways to go before we’re out of the woods, but guided by sound judgment and the advice of our public health experts, I am hopeful that we’ll get to enjoy the return of one of Boston’s most storied traditions this fall.”

In celebration of the 125th Boston Marathon, the B.A.A. will also offer a virtual race option. Additional details including field size for the in-person race, registration dates, safety measures and protocols, and participant requirements that will be in place will be forthcoming. The event plan will be pending future approval from the eight cities and towns that comprise the marathon route.

Road races are currently not permitted until Phase 4 of the Massachusetts reopening plan. The Commonwealth reverted to Phase III, Step 1 of the reopening plan on December 13, 2020.

Tedy’s Team provides the complete marathon experience, but don’t take it from us:

In 2017 I ran the Boston Marathon® for a different charity team. It was a wonderful experience that allowed me to live my dream of running the marathon and support a cause that was important to me. While training I found out about Tedy’s Team and their mission to support stroke research.

In 2018, I applied to be on Tedy’s Team. This was the only team that I applied for because I wanted to support stroke research in honor of my father. When I joined this team I got so much more than a marathon experience. I found the team that I was looking for. I met a group of amazing people who were welcoming, supportive and encouraging. Everyone genuinely cares and show their appreciation for each other. I was made to feel like part of the team from day one. Emails, Facebook groups, a meeting spot before our long runs, were some things that helped foster the team feeling, and that was all before the Marathon.

On the weekend and day of the marathon I was in awe of every detail that was tended to. There was not one thing that was overlooked. It was peace of mind knowing that my family was out of the rain and in the comfort of the Lenox Hotel. After the marathon the devotion to the stroke research continued with volunteer opportunities. Tedy’s Team is more than a group of marathon runners. It is a group of kind and caring people, that is dedicated to making a difference and supporting stroke research. This team is A TEAM –  actually, A FAMILY.”
