Frequently Asked Questions

Is the course Certified? a Boston Qualifier?

No, sorry, it’s not a BQ. A course needs USATF cer­ti­fi­ca­tion to be a BQ, and trail courses are very dif­fi­cult to cer­tify due to the vari­ety of run­ning sur­faces encountered. Also, sometimes the actual length of a trail race depends on whatever distance is needed to get you out of the woods...
