The Details:
The Boston Marathon Jimmy Fund Walk is the only event other than the Boston Marathon® sanctioned by the Boston Athletic Association (B.A.A.) to use the official marathon name and historic 26.2 mile course. Participants can choose from four route options:

  • Marathon Walk (26.2 miles) from Hopkinton
  • Half Marathon Walk (13.1 miles) from Wellesley
  • 10K Walk (6.2 miles) from Newton
  • 5K Walk (3.1 miles) from Dana-Farber Cancer Institute

Walkers are treated to refueling stations along the course as well as a celebration at the Copley Square Finish Line, complete with food, music, and a speaking program.

All walkers commit to raise a minimum of $325, except for walkers 12 years old and younger whose fundraising commitment is $125. There is also a Virtual Walker option for those unable to attend the event on September 23, but who still want to support the cause.
