At Team Brookline, we believe that people are at their strongest when they come together around shared purpose. We’ve seen firsthand how community support can inspire us to reach beyond the limits of what we thought was possible — like running a marathon. That’s why Team Brookline was established: to harness the combined powers of sport and community to make a real, tangible, and positive impact within our town.
Since 2012, we have engaged local and non-local runners to take part in the Boston Marathon with the purpose of raising funds for five incredible charity partners: the Brookline Center for Community Mental Health, Brookline Education Foundation, Brookline Library Foundation, Brookline Symphony Orchestra, and Brookline Teen Center. More than 200 runners — supported by their friends and family — have joined us to raise more than $2 million in support of these vital community organizations.
Our passionate and committed team members range from first-time marathoners to seasoned veterans, and come from near and far, but they all share the same goal: to make our community strong, healthier, and to expand access to life-improving resources for all. And, of course, to cross the finish line in Copley Square.
With Team Brookline, your training experience is personal and personalized. Our runners train together with the support of professional, experienced marathon coaches, giving you all the confidence you need to tackle the marathon route by race day.
