Winter Schedule and Upcoming Events


BAA Training Run Policy

Hello NMC’ers.

I am the liaison between the North Medford Running Club and the BAA Marathon. As such, I would like to make all members of our running club aware of a new BAA policy regarding training. runs on the Boston Marathon course, traditionally run in late March.

The BAA does not support any training runs in that time frame, nor do the health and public safety partners who support them. Running clubs who are found to organize or affiliate with such training runs will not be invited to participate in the 2023 Boston Marathon.

The board of directors and officers of NMC unanimously agree to support this BAA policy.

Best of luck to all North Medford runners who will be running Boston 2022. Be safe, be strong, be smart.
