Team Brookline, the Town of Brookline’s official Boston Marathon team, is a committed group of adult runners who train together for the Boston Marathon while raising funds for five partner charities that play an integral role in strengthening and enriching our community: The Brookline Center for Community Mental Health, Brookline Education Foundation, Brookline Library Foundation, Brookline Symphony Orchestra, and Brookline Teen Center.
Team Brookline 2020 runners trained together until the COVID-19 pandemic forced group runs to cease. Many of our committed runners continue to train individually as they prepare to run the 124th Boston Marathon virtually this September.
While we share our runners’ sadness in the season coming to an early end due to COVID-19, we remain incredibly grateful for all of the work this year’s Team has done to fundraise and get ready to run this year’s Marathon. We cannot thank you enough for your dedication to your training, and to the Brookline nonprofits you’ve all worked amazingly hard to support!

We know this is the right decision for the health and safety of our community, but we will miss bringing together a fantastic group of runners to run for the Town of Brookline.
