2021 Marathon Team

Team BHCHP is back for the 2021 Boston Marathon®!

The John Hancock Marathon Non-Profit Program has generously awarded Boston Health Care for the Homeless Program (BHCHP) with invitational runner entries for the 2021 Boston Marathon®. After a difficult year without the iconic Boston Marathon, BHCHP is looking for dedicated runners to join our 2021 team, run the historic 26.2 miles on October 11th on behalf of our program and our patients, and raise critically-needed funds to support our work.

As a part of Team BHCHP, runners will receive:

  • An exciting opportunity to join an enthusiastic team committed to improving the lives and health of Boston's homeless individuals and families,
  • A Team BHCHP singlet for race day,
  • A membership to an area running club or training program,
  • Fundraising tips and strategies,
  • Inspiring team-building events and orientation, and
  • A personal on-line fundraising page to track progress and receive sponsorships.
