The Baystate Marathon is an annual racing event in the city of Lowell, MA every October. Initiated in the year 1990, the Baystate Marathon is one of the flattest and fastest marathon courses in the northeastern United States. This fast course is often used by many runners to garner a qualifying time for the Boston Marathon.

It is well known as a race that is “For Runners – By Runners” and is one of the few remaining marathons fully hosted and executed by a running club rather than a for-profit company. The Greater Lowell Road Runners use the funds that are raised from the race to fulfill the mission of promoting and encouraging the sport of running through road races, fun runs, group training activities, lectures and social events.

Along with full marathon, it has a half marathon, half marathon relay and a 5km memorial run
