The Boston Athletic Association wants people to get active and raise money for nonprofits in the Greater Boston area with their new “Patriots’ Day Mile” on April 19th.

The Boston Athletic Association is starting a new tradition with the “Patriots’ Day Mile.”  The virtual event will be held on April 19th.

According to B.A.A. President and C.E.O. Tom Brilk, “The 2021 Patriots’ Day Mile starts a new April marathon weekend tradition that seeks to encourage people of all levels and abilities to come together to run a mile or more.  Whether new to the sport or an experienced runner, the Patriots’ Day Mile is for everyone to enjoy the benefits of being active on America’s most historic running date.”

It’s a $35 entry fee and the first 10,000 entrants “will receive a limited-edition hat featuring a red, white, and blue B.A.A. unicorn from Adidas.”

Also, “a portion of all entry fees will be donated towards the B.A.A.’s goal of raising $125,000 to support nonprofits in the Greater Boston area whose missions focus on health and wellness.”
