Now accepting applications to join Team Brookline 2021 for the 125th Boston Marathon! Training starts June 5, 2021.
Team Brookline, the Town of Brookline’s official Boston Marathon team, builds community through sport. Runners who train and run with Team Brookline strengthen our community, expanding access to mental health care, literacy, the arts, youth development programs, and education. Since being established in 2012, more than 200 runners, supported by friends, family, neighbors, colleagues, and each other, as well as our local business community, have raised more than $2 million to make a true impact in the lives of all who live, work, or go to school in Brookline.
Team Brookline 2020 runners trained together until the COVID-19 pandemic forced group runs to cease. Many of our committed runners continued to train individually and ran the 124th Boston Marathon virtually this past 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 the Team did to fundraise and get ready to run the 2020 Marathon. We cannot thank you enough for your dedication to your training, and to the Brookline nonprofits you all worked amazingly hard to support!

We were excited to learn that official Boston Marathon charity teams (including municipal teams like Team Brookline) will be part of the reduced field that runs the race on the historic marathon course. Recruitment for our October 2021 team is now underway!
