    Default Boston Midnight Marathon Bike Ride

    Anybody doing it?

    Boston Midnight Marathon – Once a year, under cover of night, we ride our bikes along the Boston Marathon route.

    The Midnight Marathon is a group bike ride - not a race, and not even a marathon. In fact, at around 30 miles, it's a few miles longer than a marathon! But don't worry - it's mostly downhill. We start from the Southborough Station parking lot and follow the Boston Marathon route all the way back to town.


    Route A: At 30.6 miles, this is the traditional Midnight Marathon route- including a large, steep hill on Cedar St shortly after starting. This route brings you across the Boston Marathon Start Line in Hopkinton. Police ask that you do not stop at the Start Line for photos nor to wait for people. Please pedal straight through and on according to the Route A Map.

    Route B: This shorter route at 27.3 miles also benefits from avoiding the Cedar St hill. This is the route we did in 2014 - joining the main Boston Marathon route at the 4 mile mark. The first 4 miles are unsupported. If you're starting late, looking to get downtown early, or just want to avoid that awful hill, check out the Route B Map.

    I've done the out and back before and it is fun. This year's weather may have me skipping all together.

    something about starting on a not very well lit course (it starts in the 'burbs), at midnight, in 35 degree weather, and while it's raining did not seem like fun....fendered bike (or not).

    This looks like a Wolfpack Hustle that doesn't want to get sued.
