We are no longer accepting applications for Team Brookline 2021. Recruitment for our April 2022 Boston Marathon team will begin this fall!

 

Team Brookline believes that the strongest teams bring together people representing the rich diversity of our community.

No Brookline residency required, just a commitment to our cause!

TEAM TESTIMONIALS

“I’ve been on other charity teams, but this Team Brookline has set an entirely new standard.  From the cheering stops on Beacon to the countless emails to those “what to expect” talks up on Heartbreak all winter, this has been an outstanding moment of our town, this team, and each of you who helped make it possible”

“It was so great to go through this experience with you all. Thank you so much to everyone who made this happen so smoothly and with such enthusiasm and expertise. It has been incredible and so memorable.”

“The team experience was amazing and really helpful while training. Couldn’t have asked for a better experience.”
