On Friday, Sept. 13, participants will run 26.2 or 13.1 miles around the home turf of the 6-Time Super Bowl Champion New England Patriots to raise money for homeless shelters throughout the region. The marathon will take place on the track surrounding the turf of the Gillette Stadium field. The course is USA Track & Field (USATF) certified and the only Boston Marathon qualifier run entirely in an NFL stadium. Each runner will receive a commemorative finish medal, t-shirt and post-race meal and more while raising significant funds to assist those experiencing homelessness.
During the event, runners will be treated to appearances by Patriots alumni, cheerleaders and entertainment throughout the evening. Spectators will be able to cheer on runners from the Optum Field Lounge, an indoor and outdoor hospitality space located at field level.
The funds raised from the inaugural Gillette Stadium Marathon purchased and distributed more than 650 coats to shelters throughout New England. The coat is a water-resistant jacket, which transforms into a sleeping bag, or when not in use worn as an over-the-shoulder bag. It costs $125 to sponsor a coat.
